This book is not a treatise on Philosophy; neither 
is it a learned discussion on the evolution of man- 
kind, nor a text-hook on Hydraulics. It is, however, 
a book containing the happenings of the college year, 
gathered and recorded by the members of the.Mon- 
ticola Board. 

Students very often say, "Wonder if this Monticola 
will be an}' better this year than before?" In reply 
to this, we can only say that it is not unlike other 
college annuals for the simple reason that "there 
is nothing new under the sun." We have the same 
old University, the same old faculty, and the same 
old students, who do the same old things in the same 

(OOui^ e 


'Qa old way. It the faculty and students hacr done some- 

thing new this book would have departed from the 
well worn path. 

However, we have gathered the material which 
tries to picture the true college life of our University. 
We have not made giants or pigmies out of the pro- 
fessors and students, but have tried to show them 
just as they are — natural, full grown, flesh and blood 
human beings. Moreover, we have catered to no one. 
What we have printed here has been collected with- 
out partiality either to individual or to organization. 

Yet all has been done with a spirit of kindness, 
with love for all and malice toward none. It is our 
sincere hope that our publication may be of some use 
and pleasure to all persons interested in the West 
Virginia University. 






In recognition of his successful work as Dean of the 
College of Law, and as an expression of their sincere ad- 
miration and respect, the Junior Class respectfully dedi- 
cates this volume of the Mcnticola t<> Charles Edgar Hogg, 
LL. I). 



ittonttcoia Cftarles; Cbgar Hogg 


Charles Edgar Hogg, the eldest son of James A. and 
Susan (Knight) Hogg, was born December 21, 185'2, in 
Mason County, Virginia, (now West Virginia). He was 
admitted to the bar in 1875, to the Supreme Court of 
Appeals of West Virginia in 1876, and to the Supreme 
Court of the United States in 1889. In 1875 he was elected 
County Superintendent of Free Schools of his native 
County, and re-elected in 1877: was a presidential elector 
in 1884, and a member of Congress from March 4, 1887, 
to March 4, 1889. 

He is the author of Hogg's Pleading and Forms, Equity 
Principles and Equity Procedure. He has also written a 
work entitled Jurisdiction and Practice in Justices' 
Courts, to be published in the course of the year. He is 
the author of the subjects Documentary Evidence, Conclu- 
sive Evidence, Judgments as Evidence, and Evidence Re- 
lating to the Law of Sales, which appear in the Encyclo- 
pedia of Evidence, eleven volumes of which have already 
appeared, and will also write the article on Wills for this 
work. His practice has been varied and extensive, and he 
is now one of the counsel for West Virginia at the suit of 
the Commonwealth of Virginia, pending in the Suprcmi- 
Court of the United States. Temple University has con- 
ferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Laws. He has 
boon Dean of the College of Law since September, 19(>(>.

entor Claste History 

,^~ -A\, 





T IS A PLEASURE to write the history of such 
a class as this, a history much of which has al- 
ready been written in grateful hearts of worthy 
students. The Monticolas of '05, '06, and '07 
contain records for the student who wishes a 
complete history of the class during its earlier col- 
ife. From its infancy its main characteristic has 
been to play a winning game. Ancient history tells us how 
the class of '08 won both the Freshman and the Sophomore 
rush. The same aggressive spirit that actuated us then 
has not waned in the least. The members of our class 
may be found taking an active part in every student or- 
ganization of the University. We are represented in 
Athletics, in the Literary and the Engineering Societies, 
and in the Christian organizations of the school. 

It is impossible to mention the achievements of each 
individual of the class. This history, however, would fail 
to do justice, should we forget to chronicle the fact that 
our ability is already being recognized. Two of our fair 
members, and one of the sterner half, have already been 
chosen from the College of Arts to fill responsible positions 

as teachers. One of the young men from the College of 
Engineering has recently accepted a lucrative position 
with Uncle Sam. Even the Board of Repents of the Uni- 
versity did not hesitate to come to us for a member of the 
faculty. Judging from the sparkle on some of our senior 
sisters' fingers, we are inclined to believe that there are 
others who have positions awaiting their graduation. We 
can only add "Amen". 

Only one incident need be cited to show how we stand 
in the Faculty's estimation. Never before did the treasurer 
of the University collect diploma fees until Commencement 
week. This year the fees were collected three months be- 

It is but fitting that such a class with its future educa- 
tors, authors, doctors, lawyers, statesmen, political lead- 
ers, and engineers — a class with brave hearts, trained minds 
and willing hands, (equal to the needs of the most pressing 
problems of the ape), should leave its Alma Mater and go 
out into a new life while the century is yet young. 





attest Virginia 

West Virginia, West Virginia! 

Often have we swelled that cry, 
Cheering on our struggling heroes, 

Fearing, yet with hope still high. 
How it stirs us gold and blue men, 

Bound by every college tie! 

West Virginia, West Virginia! 

Magic words! They have a power 
From our state's young strength that waxes 

With her work-fires hour by hour, 
From her winding, gleaming rivers, 

And the hills that o'er them tower. 

West Virginia, West Virginia! 

Seniors now, we say adieu; 
But we've breathed your living spirit, 

We will evermore be true, 
Alma Mater, West Virginia, 

Loyal to the gold and blue.

Hubert Earl Snyder is an all 
around man. As a student he has 
always ranked high. As an ath- 
lete he is "some pumpkins," 
having once caused much com- 
ment by making a five yard run 
in a class foot-ball game. As a 
ladies man — well, he is the most 
fickle hearted smasher that ever 
creased gas bills. Hubert used 
to feel that fate had decreed that 
he should complete the Panama 
Canal, bul he now seems to think 
more of football than of "the big 
ditch." He will manage the leam 
next fall. Nuf Sed. 


Quiet, modest, minding his own 
business, and carefully avoiding 
the outside world, this is H. H. 
Smith. You will wonder that he 
can be such a hermit, if you will 
look at his picture. But it is al- 
most impossible to get him out, 
even to a class meeting. 

p. w. McMillan. 

Did you ever see on the campus 
a man whose whole being im- 
pressed you as dignity personified: 
who was so stiff and straight that 
he walked "as if he had swal- 
lowed a ram-rod; and who was 
otherwise so dignified that you 
unconsciously took your hands 
from your rockets, straightened 
your bat, wired every trace of a 
smile from yo r face, and as- 
sumed a very dignified expres- 
sion? If \on ever saw such a 
person. ] now v by these presents 
thai it was Perry W. .McMillan, 
the most digni'ied of the dignified 



Clerc enjoys the proud dis- 
tinction of being able to sleep 
more than anyone else in the 
University. Even in his waking 
hours he is a perpetual dreamer, 
frequently telling his friends 
what he is going to do when he 
shall have made his "pile." Many 
and various are the schemes by 
which he hopes to acquire it, but 
on one point he is firm — he is go- 
ing to make it in some way. En- 
gineering is with him a means to 
this end. However, we are glad 
that the means brought him to 
West Virginia University. We 
hope to claim him as a graduate 
next year, and probably we shall 
if the faculty will behave. 


"Tom's" chief claim to glory is 
his ability for "bellarin the scale." 
As minor attractions we might 
mention engineering, red hair, 
and several others. "Tom" has 
continued his course as unob- 
trushely as he entered it. But, 
"some have greatness thrust up- 
on them"; so did "Tom" when he 
was elected vice-president of the 
Junior Class last fall. 




Here is a young man from P — a, 
Who has a great deal to say; 

He's windy, I guess, 

And that is no jest, 
But, say, that is only his way. 




A. If. HELL. 

Alex is one man who has not 
changed al all since we knew 
him in his freshman days. He 
is the same quiet, modest young 
man, with, a genial smile and a 
lazy appearance. The only work 
he was ev^r Known to do hap- 
pened during his sophomore year 
when he was treasurer of the 
Class of '(in. 


James Wilson Ferrell is one 
who joined the ranks of the 
Junior Class this year. While at 
Denison he heard about the Class 
of '09 of West Virginia University 
and hastened to identify himselr 
therewith. James walks along in 
an erect manner; never in a hur- 
ry, but always on time. His blue 
eyes and light hair give him a 
mild appearance, but beware, for 
he is "hasty as fire." 

H. >i. SCOTT. 

Hot air conservator for the Uni- 
versity. (Note the inflated appear- 
ance of the lad) Capacity unlim- 
ited, and the spigot turns easily. 
Never thinks except when he 
talks — they say he's swallowed 
his brains, and keeps his hat on 
by vacruni ] ressure. The girls 
and gods all lo\e him. Watch 
them follow 1 is smile, while pool 
Hal, the victim of his own 
charms, empties his pockets at 
the Acme — and the Express Of- 
i(". Oh, yes. he has a padlock 
on his heart: but he has a job 
'ot of keys which he exchanges 
for a smile. There's only one 
thing about him more charming 
Mian his face — the graceful dele- 
•■arte cvrves of his figure as he 
-ways to the motion of Rah-Rah- 
Rhu! Occasionally visits the Sig- 
ma Nu House: bin spends most 
of his time "up a tree". 


If there's any one in college 
who'll get the"well done, good and 
faithful servant" sead off, it will 
be Crystal. Registration Day 
would be impossible without her. 
Even Jack when he dons the 
white cap is no busier than she, 
and knows the card system no 
better. She has met so many 
trains, that even the engines 
would miss her. Little things 
like meals and sleep never inter- 
fere if there is anything to do 
on any of her ssventeen commit- 
tees, and then when everyone else 
is tucked in bed and can't ask her 
to do anything else, she studies. 


This demure little girl has few 
failings but her name. Looks so 
happy and so contented — in fact, 
has all the appearances of a love 
case without the man. Talks in 
short hand, and has got so 
used to the library that she gives 
you the short hand in a stage 
whisper. The responsibility of 
keeping the Library quiet and the 
privilege of calling down "stu- 
dents" have failed to disturb her 
equaniminity. By strenuous ef- 
fort she can get two faint lines 
between her eye-brows; but really 
she wouldn't frighten anybody. 


When he opens his big eyes and 
looks at you in his innocent, 
frightened way you wonder 
whether he's four or two. An- 
other who talks as if words were 
two dollars apiece. Could draw 
a picture of what he wants to say 
better than he could say it. But 
you never can tell what's going 
on behind an innocent face, and 
Hartley does a lot of thinking that 
he never gets credit for. Besides, 
an engineering instrument isn't 
a stickler for a wise gaze if there 
are no brains behind it. 






Thrifty and industrious? — yea 
he's a mod 1. Occasionally punc- 
tuates his co'.lege course with 
vacations to work and make 
money. SeeB about one out of 
every ten friends he passes. Usu- 
ally wears an expression of "This 
is me, and that — why that's just 
the University." With Don Ross 
he si ent e\ery alternate night 
for two months during his Fresh- 
man year renewing the '09 on the 


During the early years of her 
college life Lorena w r as a very 
hard student — Shakespeare and 
Anglo-Saxon consumed all her 
time. She allowed no digressions 
whatever, except occasionally 
time for class meetings and class 
rushes; for in class stunts she 
has always been a "star". But, 
in her Junior year she fell from 
her intellectual pedestal. Now it 
is campus, Library, and Monticola 
that receives her attention. She 
has served the class in the ca- 
pacity of Assistant Editor-in- 
Chief of this book. Since her elec- 
tion the tilt of her chin has 
raised considerably — we wonder 
whether it is t v e editorship or the 


This quiet. serious-minded 
girl is Mabel Wat 1 ins, an enthus- 
iastic Junior who has been at 
home the greater part of this 
year waiting for the class to catch 
up, and also taking a course in 
domestic science. The indica- 
tions are that she will put this 
knowledge to a practical use 
sometime in the future. 


One of Miss Moore's greatest 
trials is to make this little girl 
study. Following the custom of 
her countrymen, she bubbles 
over with life and keeps the hall 
in an uproar. Any noise on the 
third floor is greeted with, "I bet 
that's that noisy little Rosa 
Folau." Has always enjoyed the 
position of "The Laby of the Col- 
lege", and her nose hasn't been 
put out of joint yet. Has stop- 
ped school for a while to rest 
and to wait until she grows 
enough to graduate. 


This buxom lassie meets the 
world with a smile and gener- 
ally leaves it with one. Takes 
everything easy, but always gets 
there in time to appear in full 
dress for dinner. One of Deahl's 
special stars. Her "rep" as a 
teacher has spread all over the 
state and it is almost impossible 
even for the interests of the 
junior class to hold her in col- 
lege. Her chief interest at pres- 
ent is rushing for the Parthenon 
Literary Society against Georgia 
Staats. Her room is very popu- 
lar as the "Dispensary of Red 
Lemonade". She has beat all 
previous circus records by serv- 
ing fifteen girls with one glass 
and four lemons. 


"I am so accustomed to men, 
their tameness is shocking to 
me." Can't you just hear Mae 
say this as she trails down stairs 
for the twentieth time since 
morning to answer that 'phone; 
or waits in the parlor for prom- 
ised visits of the "Monongalian" 
Manager; the Monticola Editor — - 
and others? She never mentions 
work and you'd never know she 
did any, if the registrar should 
forget his reports. Is specializing 
in nature study and has had con- 
siderable practice in "Cheating." 






Of course everyone expects to 
hear about Walter's "affairs" — 
everyone thinks of shady walks, 
of souliul glances, of "the light 
that, lies in woman's eyes", at 
the mention of his name. It is 
hard to get accustomed to think- 
ing of him as just a lone ordin- 
ary boy minus his romantic halo. 
When all has been said, he's a 
quiet lau, irodesl rather than 
shy, with a bewitching smile, a 
complexion thai any girl would 
envy and always so trim and dap- 
per that one feels t mrted to 
rumple his hair and untie his tie 
— just to Bee ! ow he wou.d look. 


toehold one of the big guns of 
the English department; a he- 
roine who has favored Prof. Cox 
with her presence for four suc- 
cessive terms and has recently 
drawn away only because the load 
of nineties was getting too heavy. 
The only girl in the hall who has 
survived the infection of boys and 
dancing. Her entire affections 
seem to be centered in Anglo-Sax- 
on and Chaucer, and she speaks 
in the language of Shakespeare 
withal. Behind a mask so grave 
and pious as to give her the name 
of "bishop and "judge" she man- 
ages to conceal so much life and 
fun that none of tne girls dare 
to stir her up. With all her work 
she has the added responsibility 
of looking after her frisky room- 
mate and of manipulating the 
light between Lorena's blushes. 


Mr. Rhodes came upon the 
Junior Class in a burst of elo- 
quence. His first appearance was 
at the prom discussion, where he 
warmly seconded Trent's argu- 
ment against dancing. His fiery 
vigor and snapping black eyes 
brought back thoughts of Patrick 
Henry and Fourth of July ora- 
tory. But he isn't dangerous; he 
simply has convictions and is 
willing to fight for them. If he 
carries these qualities into his 
profession, we'll be proud to say 
some day "That eminent divine 
used to be a Junior". 



Donald's has been a familiar 
face abo'^.t the University since 
the memory of Juniors runneth 
not to the contrary. He didn't 
come here — he's always been here 
and just grew up with the Univer- 
sity. Ever since the first fresh- 
man meeting his drawling "Mr. 
Fresident, I move you appoint a 
committer" has been a regular 
part of the program. He ought 
to be a great promoter some day; 
for some of his ideas will make 
Carnegie sit up and take notice. 
His duties as official photograph- 
er for "The Board" have inter- 
fered somewhat with his studies 
this year, but he hopes to make 
a brilliant record as a senior. 


"Shep" blew in here in- 

and has been blowing himself 
ever since. The only one in 
school who knows where Walton 

is, but he insists that there is 

a' blacksmith shop there. He 
has never got over his freshman 
appearance, in spite of the fact 
that he sticks out his chest im- 
pressively and renders judge-like 
decisions on all questions.whether 
they're asked for or not. But he 
is a good looking chap. — If you 
don't believe it, look at his pic- 


Whenever you hear a big noise 
around the University, you may 
know it is Cy sitting down to 
work. Before he came here he 
was Valedictorian of his class- 
in fact he was the whole claSB. 
He was just about to make the 
same record here, when "Strong- 
heart" came to town. Reed, the 
grind, knocked all of his scholar- 
ly ambitions to the winds. He 
immediately purchased a pip& 
and has since srent one-half hour 
each day in dissipating and leis- 
ure Fecentlv, the lad has been 
somewhat sobered by the an- 
nouncement in the class prophecy 
that he would be engaged to one 
of the Juniors for fourteen years. 






Playing watchdog to so many 
treasuries has given this financier 
an eye and a jaw that a bull dog 
might be proud of. He thinks 
twice and speaks in bunches, and 
everybody listens to the bunches, 
for they're always solid and hit 
the spot. An accomplished knock-* 
er; has taken several prizes in 
that line; thinks life would be so 
much nicer if we didn't have to 
eat — it's such a bore. A light 
haired lassie stole his heart be- 
fore he came here, and he's been 
dreadfully constant. Only com- 
mittee meetings have induced him 
to give any of his time to the 
other girls. 


Behold in this young lady a 
rapacious devourer of Greek "and 
Anglo-Saxon. In Greek class, 
she does not await her turn, but 
reads whenever a pause affords 
her opportunity. And as for 
Anglo-Saxon, she was never 
known to be less than two day's 
work ahead of the class. Will 
somebody please tell us how to 
make her stop? 


This slender stripling loves art, 
but not for art's sake. If he is 
ever seen without an artist near 
him, it is not his fault. He is 
especially fond of Florida prod- 
ucts. Does that mean Orange 


If this pink-cheeked son of 
"Owld Oirland" would only come 
out of his shell and let people 
know him, there would be lots or 
nice things to write about him. 
It is rumored that he is working 
hard; but whether he works or 
whether he loafs, he does it with 
himself and few are the wiser for 
it. However, good hard sense, 
an Irish wit, and good nature 
shine even through the skull. 

J. W. HALL. 

A good picture of John with 
his mouth shut and his eyes open 
— the first time this happy com- 
bination has occurred since he sat 
for the photograph which took 
the prize at the Daby show. He 
was unable to manage the ponies 
on the farm, so was sent here 
for scientific training in the art. 
Is rapidly becoming proficient 
and if he holds a tight rein next 
year, will be able to ride home 
with a B. S. C. E. on behind him. 
Lives in a hapny-go-lucky way. 
Can sink down into a corner out 
of sight when he doesn't want 
to be seen, go to sleep if he 
doesn't want to hear what is be- 
ing said, and can rival President 
Purinton in pouring oil on 
troubled waters. 



K. O. HALL. 

A cadet after the captain's own 
heart. Stands like a ramrod, 
tall s in pnp.les and has a triangu- 
lar smil<=" that won't come off. 
Piloted his class through the 
troublous tinrs of their sopho- 
more ye'r and lost enough of his 
dignity to lead them in the class 
rush. His long suit is a wise 
look, which has helped him in 
his rising career aii u as it in- 
creases, will make him a great 
statesman — or poker player. 





A sure cure for wracked nerves 
— moves about with a mouse-like 
tread and never speaks unless she 
is spoken to. Looks timidly at 
the hoys and demurely passes on. 
Is late for her meals, barely in 
time for her classes, and usual- 
ly working under high pressure? 
when other folks are in bed. A 
special pet of librarians and staid 
old bachelors — and not afraid of 
Jack Hare on registration day. 


A small bundle of everything 
compressed into almost nothing. 
The girl who can promise more 
work than anyone else in the 
University, and is so busy trying 
to keep the University running 
that she hasn't time to get her 
own work. Can walk as fast as 
Ted Arthur, talk as fast as Pidge 
Point; otherwise moderate. Usu- 
ally seen at an angle of forty-five 
degrees, making a tick-tack of her 
heels, and headed lor the next en- 


Here is a man who is passion- 
ately fond of Nature. Perhaps 
that is why he always wears a 
cowboy hat and leggins, and car- 
ries a kodak. There was once 
a Park located on First Street, 
which he fairly haunted. For a 
year now this park has been 
gone, and even the kodak pic- 
tures of his beloved pleasure- 
ground (?) can not reconcile him 
to his loss. 


Harry is our real-estate shark. 
He does not talk much about his 
business affairs, but it is con-, 
jectured that he owns some very 
valuable property in Grafton. His 
frequent trips to that beautiful 
city has strengthened this belief 
in the minds of his friends, who 
have tried in vain to enlist his 
interest in similar enterprises 
here. "His faithfulness is admir- 
able" remarked one of the fair 
sex recently, "but it is certainly 


Although still in his early 
teens, Leo is already an author 
whose genius is brilliant and 
startling, but such is nis modesty 
that he refuses to publish his 
works except under an assumed 
name. Perhaps he is afraid of 
being "Hobsonized", and, after 
all, we can not blame him for 
wishing to live an obscure life, 
for, even as it is, the bows are 
always stolen from the inside of 
his hat, and it is said that more 
daring worshippers have even 
snipped off locks of his hair. 




No one has ever succeeded in 
gaining more than a passing smile 
from this man — he's always on 
his way to get an education. 
Knows what he's here for, and 
does it: and doesn't let much get 
past the steel-trap which he 
wears for a mouth. One of 
Emory's stars for keeping awake 
— especially brilliant when Bruce 
and Scott are around. 




Oh, yes, this is the original 
"Petie' . Good nature with the lid 
off. Better known as "Peter the 
Dog", either to distinguish him 
from" Petie"Mar tin or on account 
of his frisky, waggish ways. Had 
been in college nearly three years 
before he discovered his histri- 
onic talent; hut since his decided 
hit in the mock trial, he has spehl 
most of his time re, using offers 
to play Richard III. His zeal 
i or his ('. B., and a raise of sal- 
ary on the Monticola Hoard have 
caused him to smother his am- 
bition's "for the glare of the foot 
lights", and we shall probably be 
able to claim him as a '09 gradu-

Oh how homesick he became, — he

what's the use of a fuss? 
Speaks when he's spoken to —

In a Co-ed's affections he's deep- 

lv installed. 


This young laird answers to 
the name of "Scotchy". Being 
a typical Scotchman, he is an 
admirer of all things Scotch. 
He sometimes has difficulty in 
making up his mind on a ques- 
tion, but when someone opposes 
him, he has all the Scotch firm- 
ness. Lately he has started to 
take gymnasium to develop firm- 
ness of body — and to fill up the 
hollow cavities. 


Brooks was a member of thb 
class of '08, but decided to wait 
for a class that would suit him 
better, as he always was particu- 
lar about the "class" of every- 
thing. He has been popular 
among the "Co-eds", and 'tis 
rumored, has had several "af- 
fairs." Howe\er, we always 
believed him immune from any- 
thing serious until he went to the 
Navy game last fall, and in fif- 
teen minutes, lost his heart, and 
— his fraternity pin. 


This good natured child first 
made his appearance at West Vir- 
ginia in football togs — and stayed 
in them till the season was over. 
During the winter he gave up 
most of his time and talents to a 
strenuous campaign for the office 
of comissary. Victorious in this 
he next gave his attention to 
score-cards and broke all previ- 
ors records by finishing the job 
in twenty-four hovrs. By way 
of conclusion he's a buckeye, is 
known to the boys as Flossie and 
has a strong affinity for misses. 






H. ('. BARNES. 

There are just two things he 
can do more of than anyone else 
in school — study and chew — usu- 
al rale about titty pages and two 
packages of Mail Pouch a clay. 
Wears a number 6 1-2 hat, and 
uses a five gallon cuspidor. Made 
a special trip to Fairmont to vote 
the i inhibition ticket; but has 
been known to swear softly twice. 
Seen on the street at intervals 
of about two weeks. Lives at 
Mechanical Hall, and visits his 
room occasionally. Everyone is 
looking for a big splash when 
he carries his M. E. out into the 


The Engineering Department 
is already worrying about what 
is to be done when this little fel- 
low graduates. He was raised on 
pretzels and didn't grow much at 
that; but has packed away in his 
head abo-t all there is to be 
learned e.t Heidelberg. But he 
isn't the least bit selfish with his 
knowledge and will give any ot 
the professors any point he wish- 
( ; to know about machinery — pro- 
vided of course that he is asked 
with the proper respect. Some 
day he'll probably have enough 
letters after his name to spell it 
over again. 


After we-t'ering for two years 
at Bud Liannon, Paul came to the 
University in his war-paint for the 
Fhodes Scholarship exairs. No 
one saw him and no one h^ard 
him until he had tackled them 
and won out Since he has got 
the promise of three years at Ox- 
ford however, he has shown mark- 
ed symptoms of developing into 
a regulation college sport — 
amusing himself by taking three 
courses, cuts class once a tern, 
and has made several attempts to 
own a dog. 



Born in baseball season in 
Martinsburg. As a child he play- 
ed with bats instead of rattles, 
cut his teeth on base-balls and 
learned his a b c's out of "Spald- 
ing". After learning the primary 
points of the game in his native 
village he passed the entrance 
requirements and came to the 
University. Here he has made 
such progress that he can sit in 
the bald headed row of the 
bleachers and keep Henderson 
company. Besides working for 
this degree of B. B. C, he also 
tinkers with electricity. Since his 
valuable aid at the St. Felix 
Party he has been made official 
electrician of the junior class. 
He is fond of giving his profes- 
sors encores. Emory being his 
special favorite. 

B. W. KING. 

Chief dignitary of the class. 
Editor of the Athenaeum and of- 
fice boy to Prexy! Oh it hasn't 
hurt him much except to get his 
chin about three inches higher. 
It's been rather easy on the rest 
of the staff this year, filling up 
the space that was left from 
King's editorials. But things 
might as well be said in an edi- 
torial way as any other — and if 
he wants to say anything you 
can't stop him. As a recreation 
from his official and literary du- 
ties he spends most of his spare 
time "Prospecting". A pleasant 
pastime but one which may lose 
him his Bachelor's degree. 






After swallowing Keyser Prep 
in one gulp, Herman came down 
to look over the University, and 
after sizing things up decided 
there was enough in the engineer- 
ing department to make four pret- 
ty good sized bites. Has said 
about five hundred words since 
he came here, and a hundred and 
fifty of them were used in an- 
nouncing the program for the 
junior party. Usually walks 
about with a quiet contented air, 
happy if he meets someone, hap- 
py if he doesn't. All he needs are 
a pipe and wooden shoes to make 
him a typical German farmer, con- 
tented with his cottage and his 


Don't you know him! Well, 
go down to the Acme-. Yes he's 
standing there. The High School 
has just let out, you know. The 
man on the inside has 'phoned 
for another freezer of cream, he's 
had experience before. Yes, he's 
corralled the whole crowd. He's 
a good fellow and generous with 
Papa's pocket-book, so he's the 
lion of the hour. Lab fees and 
bills at the Acme "Book" store 
make Pa open his eyes; but he 
doesn't open them quite wide 
enough to see which side of the 
Acme the bills run up in.

I. And, behold, it came to pass that on the tenth day after 
Pentecost, an angel appeared unto Felix, saying: 

II. "Arise, Felix, for great joy hath come unto you, yea 
exceeding great gladness." 

HI. It hath been decreed that a people shall he raised up 
unto yon. even the Tribe of '09, that shall call thee. Saint Felix. 

IV. And these people shall think thy thoughts — and shall 
follow thy teaching — and great shall he their glory. 

V. They shall come to abide among the mountains in the 
City of Bridges, where, at the beginning, they shall wage wai 
on the Tribe of 'OS and shall overcome them; yea. with greal 
\'<>rrr shall they cast them down. 

VI. Yet a little while and they shall go forth to meet th< 
Tribe of lino and again shall they be victorious. 

VII. Even as fell the walls of Jericho, so shall all things 
be overcome and trod under foot by this mighty people; even 
as Samson smote the Philistines, so shall all men feel the weight 
of their hand. 

VIII. And. 'ed by '-Hal", the Editor, they shall make 
a Book and strange faces, and curious prints, ami all manner 
of devices, and lo, much wisdom shall be therein. 

IX. And in sports shall they be mighty: in all games shall 
they excel. 

X. And they shall raise up leaders of all men. even 
''Thomas", who shall be called to preside over the association

P?T IS ALMOST unnecessary in this sketch to mention 
the date, September, 1906, when an event of great im- 
portance to the University took place. The students 
in the class of 1910 registered so quietly and took their 
places in the student body with such dignity and dis- 
cretion that those around hardly realized what had happened. 
In a very short time the class showed that its reserve force was 
to he counted on. As new men in the Freshmen-Sophomore rush, 
the Freshmen covered themselves witli glory and caused great 
consternation among their opponents. Later, in the class football 
games, 1910 not only held its own from the beginning but swept 
everything relentlessly before it. The prospects for the Uni- 
versity football, baseball, and basketball teams brightened when 
men from this class stepped forward to till important places. 

But not only in athletics was the new element to be con- 
sidered: in recitation rooms professors became interested, and 
felt that they might look forward to results. Those representing 

college organizations discovered that they might draw with safe- 
ty upon the new supply of workers. So, with this splendid be- 
ginning, the iirst year ended for the class of 1910. 

Its second year, now almost over, has been one of success 
and accomplishments for its members. The succeeding Freshmen 
Class found them immovable and stood back respectfully. As 
a result the Sophomores have been kind, sympathetic and ready 
at all times to give the Freshmen asistance in their upward 
struggle, a relationship unusual between lower classmen. The 
feeling between the Juniors ami Sophomores, formerly oppon- 
ents, is one of warmest admiration, in spite of the fact that 
the class of 1909 has found it necessary once or twice to guard 
its laurels carefully. To the graduating class, a good friend 
and ally, 1910 extends, here, best wishes for the future. Thus 
the Sophomore Class, which stands for strength, organization, 
eomradship, and enthusiasm, with a brilliant outlook closes its 
second year of history making.

In a town in West Virginia, 

By the famous Bard O, 
There's a great old University 

Of which of course you know. 

There's a class in this old Varsity, 
That knows a thing or two 

And if you haven't heard of it, 
It's simply one on you. 

Perhaps it wouldn't strike you 

As so very hard to beat, 
But it's in the race to stay 

And it will not stand defeat. 

Don't think because we're new here 
That we never get up steam; 

Just remember that old saying, 

Things are seldom what they seem. 

We beat the stuck-up Sophomores 

In every blessed game 
Of basket-ball, and found the sport 

Superlatively tame. 

Our Class of course is most renowned 
For knowledge and sharp wits, 

And even Livy cannot make us 
Turn away as "quits". 

In Rhetoric ten and eleven too, 

With Pat and Smith as "prods", 

We win the honors due to those 
Who're favored by the gods. 

Of all the Freshman classes, 

That have struck this college town 
Ours is the only one of them 

That's really gained renown. 

Don't imagine that I stop, because 

I have no more to say; 
Just think what you would do, 

If placed in such a way. 

The Class is such a brilliant one, 

Its members all so bright, 
That I'd know not where to stop at all. 
\ If I got started right. 

May you poor "preps" who read this 
Just as bright a future see, 

"Of course you can never be like us 

But be as like as you're able to be'

Class History — Junior Halo 



Attracted by the growing reputation of the law school 
of the West Virginia University, applicants for admission 
to the junior class began to present themselves in goodly 
numbers early in the fall of 1907, some arriving a few 
days before the scheduled time, while others lingered with 
the home-folks till the last moment — and paid the penalty. 

One of the first matters to come before this unlawful 
combination of law-givers was the selection of a president. 
Several of the boys had their ears to the ground listening 
for a call to this honor, but when Mr. Peddicord rose from 
his seat and, in his eloquent and masterly way championed 
the cause of Harry L. Jones, one and all of those would-be 
presidents made a wild scramble for the band wagon, and 
Mr. Jones was elected by acclamation. Burke O'Neal got 
the second place, that of vice-president, while Peddicord 
was chosen to record the deliberations of the body. Mr. 
Hinerman was placed in charge of the exchequer, and to 
Mr. Simms it was given to organize a department of ath- 
letics, with the injunction that he establish and maintain 
the reputation and honor of the class in that field. The 
burdensome duty of chronicling the doings of the junior 
law class, in that its memory might be perpetuated in 
the mind of man. for the benefit and guidance of those yet 
to come, fell to — the historian. And thus it was that the 
class came into official existence. 

The routine duties incident to the study of the law, it 
is believed, were generally discharged to the satisfaction of 
the worthy expounders of the several subjects. Judging, 

however, from the fact that the numerical strength of the 
class was not perceptibly reduced at the beginning of the 

Early in the winter term a severe loss was sustained, in 
the person of Dr. St. George Tucker Brooke, who was com- 
pelled to give up his work because of bad health, which 
loss, it is hoped, will be only temporary. Dr. Brooke has 
spent the greater part of his life inculcating the theories 
of Blackstone into the minds of the youthful lawyers of 
West Virginia and other states, many of whom have risen 
to positions of honor and distinction in their profession. 
In this, as in many other -cases, the value of the man's 
services were not fully appreciated until, in the ripeness 
of experience, had to give up his work and an effort was 
made to fill the vacancy. Charles J. Hogg was secured to 
take charge of Dr. Brooke's department until he should 
sufficiently recover to resume his duties. Mr. Hogg in- 
dustriously put the boys through the gymnastics of the law. 
like the true follower of Blackstone that he is. Being a 
firm believer in the "strenuous life" remarkable progress 
was made. 

Believing, now, that herein have been set down the 
more important points in the history of the junior law 
class of 1908, without further comment it is respectfully 
submitted to our successors ad infinitum, and, by the rule 
of merit, to be forgotten or remembered by them, for be- 
fore this court of last resort all must stand trial. Finis.

^HEN the members of the present sophomore 
medical class entered the University in the 
Fall of 1906, they caused no riffle of excite- 
ment as did the members of some of the 
other classes. Since then their conduct has 
been along the same lines, and today they are spoken of 
as a quiet, conservative class, loyal and enthusiastic in 
every matter pertaining to their department and to the 
athletics of the University. 

The members of the sophomore medical class realize 
that the primary object of their time spent here is to fit 
themselves and others for the future and with this end in 
view, make pleasure secondary to duty. 

In regard to our members, Henry Becker, our presi- 
dent, is the same ardent admirer of the ladies, but at 
present is very much interested in the study of the Egypt- 
ian art of preserving the dead. 

Byrd Hunter, vice-president, and president of the 
Scientific Society of the medical department, is a diligent 
study of Cunningham, and bids fair to become a famous 
anatomist in the future. 

Frank Sisler, secretary of the class, and also secre- 
tary of the Scientific Society, won the anatomy prize last 
year, and is working hard for a prize which isn't men- 
tioned in the catalogue. 

Isiah Taylor, our treasurer, is very systematic in his 
work and habits, and there are certain evenings with which 
class or society meetings must not interfere. 

Sylvester Campbell has already received honorable men- 
tion for his masterful discussion of the bacteriological 
side of some chinical cases. 

Glen Harper has been trying very hard this term to 
discover the "whys and wherefores" of mumps, and hopes 
to be able to report something definite in the near future. 
Ray Tuckwiller is his first assistant, and we expect them 
to have their names mentioned in the various text-books in 
the years to come. 

"Jo" Georgessi is never seen without his "after-class" 
cigar and happy smile. 

Walter Point has at last been able to distinguish the 
morphological characters of B. pyocyaneus, and is willing 
to impart his knowledge to anyone interested. 

We desire to express our sincere thanks to our in- 
structors, Drs. Simpson, Grant, Reese and Kortright, for 
their untiring efforts exerted in our behalf, and for the 
assistance and interest they have shown us when things 
looked discouraging.

)IXCE it has been the custom of preceding classes 
to leave some slight remembrance of their doings 
and undoings as Freshman ".Metis.," and since. 
it has fallen upon me to perform this pleasant 
duty, 1 shall endeavor, in my allotted space, 
only to hint at the many achievements and failures of the 
class of 1910. 

1 venture to say that few, if any. of those who gathered 
in the physiological laboratory for their first recitation 
in osteology, will soon forget that hour. Our class was. 
peculiarly, a class of strangers, both to the subject upon 
which we were about to begin work, and to each other pel 
sonally. After having listened to a few introductory re- 
marks by Dr. Grant, and after the majority of us had view- 
ed for the first time the skeleton of a human being, we 
were supplied with a box containing the bones of a once 
Living human being. I feel that I voice the sentiments of 
all my classmates when I say that I felt like a stranger in 
a Strang land at the close of my first day in the role of a 
medical student. Hut as each weary day brought us closer 
and closer in touch with each gruesome part in that weird 
little box. thai feeling of awe gradually disappeared and 
in its place there arose the image of an almost uncon- 
querable foe, with whom we were to contend and whom we, 
had to conquer before we could bear the name of sopho- 

The Freshman Medical Class is made up of men who 
are represented in almost every branch of University Life, 
from cadel corps to athletics. In co-operation with theSopho- 

more Medical Class, the honor system has been adopted, and 
the Scientific Society of the University has been formed. 
We hope that these two movements will be instrumental 
in bringing about much good in the medical school in the 

It took but little time for the class to choose as its 
leader Silas Underwood. His faithful, studious habits ami 
undisputed executive abilities won for him the honorable 
position of president of our class. Silas is a good yankee 
and a member of the Bald Head Club. The real "heart- 
masher" of the class is Arturo Carbonelle, a handsome 
little fellow who hails from Puerto Rico. It was noticed 
toward the end of the year that in the class room Artuso, 
for some reason, always assumed a meditative and serious 
expression. It has been impossible to ascertain whether it 
was the result of worry over his important duties as 
vice-president of the class, or whether it was due to the 
effect of a dear friend in South Park. Adrien Grigg, a 
tall, sturdy youth from Montgomery Prep., assumes the 
double role of treasurer and secretary of the class. He 
informs the writer that these positions at present afford 
few available opportunities for any material graft. Adrien 
has been showing great form in the pitcher's box. and 
everybody expects great things from him in this capacity. 

Although the remaining members id' the class are not so 
fortunate as to be leaders, each one has his distinguishing 
characteristics. Now. Mick and Zinn are the representa- 
tive "grinds." They would not think of cutting class 
or of allowing their college life to interfere with their 


studies. And after all, we can only honor them the more 
for their faithfulness. On the other hand, Richmond and 
Dutch Brindley are somewhat inclined to follow the sport- 
ing life. Pool and mid-night lunches at the Stag are their 
"hobbies." Dutch is a member of that musical Ohio 
"bunch" and is quite a cornetist. Now, there's Paul 
Rider, the scientific chap. Although you could not ex- 
actly call Paul a "grind" he is alwoys posted on anything 
that is the least scientific, but pleads total ignorance of 
anything apart from this. He carries a vocabulary of 
scientific terms that makes the rest of us feel hopeless. 
Tommie Harris' vocabulary is extensive enough, but he 
frequently gets his terms confused and causes many a 
hearty laugh from the class. But Dr. Simpson is of opinion 
that he is a skillful bluffer and because of this he predicts 
for him a very successful career as a practicing physician. 
Ed Sperling is a member of the Ohio "bunch" and has 

made himself famous by discovering a less expensive drug 
to produce the same effects as apomorphine and ipecac. 
He is further distinguished by being a member of the 
Bald Head Club and of the Cadet Band. J. W. P. Hall 
gave promise of being a brilliant student in the early part ifttlontlCOla 
of the year, but he has fallen prey to one of cupid's arrows 09 

and as a consequence his bright prospects as a student 
have vanished. Last, but not least, is Willie Brunz Piles, 
the baby of the class. Under the tender care of Drs. Simp- 
son and Grant he seems to be imbibing a goodly amount of 
medical knowledge. 

We wish to express our appreciation of the untiring ef- 
forts of Dr. Simpson and Dr. Grant in our behalf, and we

Season at 06 in Base Ball 

Fifteen successive victories in base ball this year, are all we have 
time to record before the Monticola goes to press. But certainly that 
looks good to every W. V. U. man. Everyone was afraid we were going 
to be weak in our pitching staff and thus lose games. But since the open- 
ing of the season we have played at least three games each week, and 
our pitching staff has shown up to be as good as the rest of the team; 
which is saying a good deal. And my, how our boys are hitting the 
ball! A man has to be batting above .450 to be considered a good hit- 
ter. The record of games played up to May 1 .J is as follows:

?ri\* iloninnce of dancing Cloud 




HE wind swept over the bleak prairie, and darted 
through every crack and crevice of the shed-like 
building used as a hospital. The dozen or more 
pale, disheartened patients shivered as the wind 
whistled through the many openings, and played 
hide and seek under the insufficient covering on their cots. 
Private Dalton was on duty, and when he saw big Dick 
Weldon shiver and huddle under his gray blanket, he piled 
more cottonwood into the broken stove. 

"(rod help these poor devils it' Jennings doesn't suc- 
ceed in killing a bit of fresh meat of some kind," he mut- 
tered. "We'll never gel 'em out on 'hard-tack' and rice. 
H the Captain hadn't forbidden us to trade with the In- 
dians. I'm sure 1 could wheedle some of Spotted Tail's men 
into yetting some buffalo meat for us. There's Jennings 
a1 last." 

"Only two lank Jack-rabbits for all my tramp," said 
Jennings, as he dropped wearily upon a stool. "But they'll 
make the boys a hii of broth." 

Then Dalton look- Hie game across to the commis- 
sary's leni to prepare it for the patients. Jennings stretch- 
ed himself on a bench behind the stove, and soon fell 
asleep. He was awakened by a gruff "Huh!" As he 
opened his eyes he saw two Sioux squaws with baskets of 
bead-worb and other trifles to sell. 

"Wampum pouch", said the younger of the two, as she 
held up a hay made id' buckskin, entirely covered with 
beads. "Good kinnikinic pouch. White man smoke kin- 

She was of a slender, graceful build, a striking con- 
trast to her hardy angular companion who towered head 
and shoulders above her. Her features lacked the hard- 
ness that characterizes the face id' the average Indian. 
What was even more remarkable than her graceful form 
and attractive features was her soft, melodious voice. In- 
stead of the abrupt utterance of her people, she had a touch 
of the languid southern drawl. Jennings smiled and shook 
his head. 

"White man need something to eat — need corn, need 
meat, need potatoes." he said, almost unconsciously fall- 
ing into the Indian habit of omitting the article. He walk- 
ed beside the squaws as they went from cot to cot and 
looked down at the sick soldiers, lie was startled to no- 
tice how pale Dick Weldon looked as he lay in a restless 

"This poor man will soon go to your happy hunting 
ground if he doesn't yet something he can eat. lie's too 
sick to eat our rough army fare." 

They paused before Dick's cot and Jennings tucked 
the coover close around him. The little squaw gave a start- 
led grunt and seized her companion's arm. She scanned 
the face of the sleeper eagerly, then exclaimed: 

"See. Yellow Moon! See white man's beard! Redder 
than fur of prairie fox. Dancing Cloud know white man." 
And she pointed toward Dick. 

"You know that man.'" asked Jennings. 

"Yes, yes." she cried. "Dancing Cloud have ponies,; 
two spotted ponies, Star Face and White Foot. Cue day 


Star Face get foot fast between stones by big water. Danc- 
ing Cloud not strong enough to move big stones. Soon 
Red Beard come along with his gun. He says, 'Hello, 
Indian girl, what the matter.'' Then he come, see what 
is matter and move stones. Then Star Face get loose." 

The squaws nodded to each other then toward Dick, 
and uttered a few gruff, guttural sounds. 

"Good bye, Dancing Cloud come back soon," she said, 
as they turned suddenly toward the door. "Bring Reel 
Beard meat; bring Great Medicine Man make him strong — 
move big rocks. 

And the squaws went out, jabbering excitedly as they 
sprang upon their ponies which were in care of a third 
squaw outside. 

Dick awoke, raised himself feebly upon his elbow and 
looked around. Jennings was adjusting the held glass to 
look at some object approaching from the East. When he 
had satisfied himself that it was the captain returning 
with his reconnoitering squad, he turned to stir up the fire, 
for he felt the cold even through his heavy uniform. 

"Hello, Dick! Got awake at last, did you? Some of 
Spotted Tail's squaws were in here admiring your beau- 
tiful locks and whiskers. The little one that calls herself 
'Dancing Cloud 1 ' has gone home to bring her family physi- 
cian to treat you." 

Dick consigned the squaws in particular and the whole 
Sioux nation in general to a region not mentionable in 
polite society, and demanded to know whether the com- 
missary had anything on hand beside "angel biscuits." 

"Oh, yes," answered Jennings. "There's some rice 
and some salt 'flitch', but you better save your appetite. 
Dancing Cloud intends to bring you some delicacies from 
Spotted Tail's larder. There may be some cat meat or 

sonic yellow dog on hand. You like cat soup, don't you.'" 
Dick felt around as far as he could reach for some- 
thing to throw at Jennings. Finding nothing, he burst in- 
to peevish cursing. .Just then Dalton came in with a tin 

of broth. Jfflonticola 

"Ilaymond is coming with more," he said. "I bur- 09 

ried to Dicky first. Do you know, Jennings, Dicky boy 
got mad last night and wouldn't eat at all because I 
didn't bring him roast turkey with stuffin' and mince pie, 
and a few more things he used to get back in Virginia." 
Dalton 's roaring "haw, haw!" fairly .shook the rafters, 
but Dick paid no attention to him. What he wanted was 
something to satisfy the hunger that seemed to be gnawing 
into his system — even to the very marrow in his bones. 
When he had ravenously drunk the broth, he raised his 
trembling arm and weakly flung the empty tin at Dalton. 

"The sample is good," he said. "Take my oi'der for 
a gallon. A rush order, if you please." 

About the middle of the afternoon, Jennings awoke 
with the feeling that the bugle had sounded the call to 
parade. As he sprang from his bench he saw the company 
in line before the captain's tent. When he opened the 
door, a most extraordinary sight met his eyes. Dancing 
Cloud, dressed in the height of Sioux elegance — a queer 
little jacket and an abbreviated skirt of buckskin, fringed 
and heavily beaded — was riding slowly toward the tent. 
She was riding Star Face. At a pony's length behind her 
rode Spotted Tail himself. At about the same distance be- 
hind him rode a still more striking figure, the Great Medi- 
cine Man of the Sioux, who was at that time with spotted 
Tail's band. His head was wreathed with long gay-colored 
feathers, which hung down around his neck instead of wav- 
ing aloft like the warrior's feathei*s. He was covered 


from head to foot in a robe of various colored furs crudely 
fast cued together. He carried several crude devices for 
making the discordant noises so popular among' the North 
American Indians. Perhaps the most interesting of these — 
itlontlCOla as well as the most awful, from the standpoint of results — 
09 was a sort of iiddle made of several strips of tough, gnarled 

pine wood. The bow was a bent hickory stick, stretching 
tightly several thin strings of resined buckskin. The sound 
produced by it was similar to that of the instrument of 
torture known as a "horse fiddle", common at charivaris 
in the country. This sound can not be adequately de- 
scribed. It must lie heard to be appreciated. 

Behind the Medicine Man rode about a do/en "braves" 
and three or four squaws, single file. Every now and then, 
as the procession advanced, the Medicine .Man drew his 
resined strings across the strips of wood, and brought forth 
a blood-curdling wail. No wonder the company had been 
called out to meet this formidable procession ! 

But they came neither to declare war nor to demand 
tribute, but merely to escort the Great .Medicine Man to 
"Red Beard's Lodge" that he mighl be cured, for "Red 
Beard" had befriended the little squaw, and there was 
notliing the dusky leader would not now be willing to do 
for him. 

Dancing Cloud halted before the hospital, but Spotted 
Tail rode a little beyond it toward the captain's quarters 
before which the company was drawn up. The old warrior 
seemed never to tire id' seeing the men drill, and almost 
daily came Dear enough to watch them. But as the rest 
of his party were dismounting before the hospital, he rode 
slowly back to them. The squaws carried baskets id' pro- 
visions, buffalo meat and dried fish, corn, beans and pota- 
toes, for those were practically all the vegetables they cul- 

tivated. These they offered to Jennings, who stood in the 

Dancing Cloud inquired of him whether they might 
go in and make "Read Beard" well, lie called to ask Dick 
and heard in reply : 

"Yes. give the Medicine Man rope. I want to see 
what kind of shines he'll cut." 

When Jennings nodded "yes." to her. she led the 
Medicine Man to Dick's cot. He laid his various noise- 
producing instruments on the floor and tramped solemnly 
back and forth in front of the cot. At first he wailed and 
moaned in the most dismal manner, and swayed his body 
and waved his arms as if in torture. Then he threw back 
his shoulders and strutted like an over-confident fowl. Fi- 
nally he took up his crude musical instruments, one at a 
time, the pinestick fiddle, an old snare drum, a cracked 
call bell, a triangle, a battered brass kettle, a string of 
small sleigh bells and a wooden fife. He played each in 
turn for a few seconds. Jennings had kept a grave face 
through it all. though Dick had pulled the blanket over 
his face and was shaking the cot with suppressed mirth. 
Bui when the Indian hit a measure of Yankee Doodle in 
four-four time, it was too much for human endurance, and 
Jennings burst into a laugh that was echoed around the 
room. Dick pushed back the blanket from his face, nodded 
to Dancing Cloud, then toward the provisions, then toward 
t he Medicine Man. and said : 

"Thank you. Dancing Cloud. Good Indian girl. Soon 
make while man strong again." 

The procession formed and rode back to Spotted 
Tail's lodge to the music of the Medicine Man's life. But 
the old warrior and his little daughter came back daily and 
sat around in the hospital or tents. In ten or twelve 

■i „ i 

(lays when Dick was able to be up. Spotted Tail brought 
some specimen's of ore which Dick, who claimed to know 
about such things, pronounced to be gold ore of a rarel 
value. He inquired eagerly where they came from. 

Spotted Tail nodded and smiled sagely, and said : 

"Follow me. I show you where you can pick up gold 
as fast as hungry chickens pick up corn. Follow me. Be 
my son. I give you little squaw. Some day make you great 

Dick was dumb with sheer amazement. The old war- 
rior silently rose to go. 

"You think you make up mind. Spotted Tail come 
again." And he strutted out of the room. 

"In the name of all the saints! What does the old 
copper- face mean?" said Dick. 

"Seems to me he means to propose for Dancing 
Cloud"' laughed Jennings. 

Poor Dick had a hard time of it for the next month. 
Either Spotted Tail or Dancing Cloud, or both, came each 
day and in some manner renewed the offer. One day after 
watching Dick intently for an hour. Dancing Cloud ex- 
claimed : 

"White man no want to follow Spotted Tail away 
to north, get gold, be Dancing Cloud's chief. Then Danc- 
inf Cloud leave Sioux, follow "Red Beard" to east, to 
white man's land. Be good squaw." 

There was something so pathetic in the weary, almost 
hopeless tone in which the words were uttered that big, 
gruff Dick Weldon's heart was wrenched with pity for her. 
But he knew his kindest course would be to make it clear 
to her once for all that she must give up this mad dream 
of love for him. So he said firmly : 

"Dancing Cloud, I can neither go north with yon and 
your people, nor take you east with me. The laws of un- 
people allow a man but one squaw. A squaw and curly- 
haired papooses are waiting for me in my old home." 

And he took from an inside pocket a picture of a beau- 
tiful, mild-faced woman with a great mass of wavy hair. 
Two pretty little girls on the couch beside her, nestled lov- 
ingly in the bow of her arms. Dancing Cloud looked long 
and earnestly at the picture. Then she burst out impati- 
ently : 

"Red Beard's squaw beautiful. Dancing Cloud ugly! 
Why Great Father make her so.'" And she clenched her 
little brown hands and stamped her moceasined feet in 

"Dancing Cloud come no more. Red Beard can not 
love ugly squaw. Great Father no good — cruel to make her 

She darted noiselessly from the room, and for weeks 
neither she nor Spotted Tail were seen by any of the sold- 
iers. Now and then a "brave" came to the fort to sell 
game or grain, for the scarcity of supplies made it neces- 
sary for the captain to rescind his order against trading 
with them. 

"We've got to watch that wily old red devil," said 
the captain one day. "No telling what he'll try because 
Dicky wouldn't join the tribe." 

But for once Spotted Tail was not planning mischief. 
He was mourning because Dancing Cloud, his only child. 
the one creature for whom he had a spark of tender feel- 
ing, was pining away before his eyes and he was powerless 
to prevent it. The Great Medicine Man had gone north 
when she first showed signs of illness, a few days after her 




lasl visil to llic fori when she had told her father of "Red 
Beard's" beautiful squaw. Bu1 when she firmly refused 
all food or drink for days. Spotted Tail had sent his swift- 
est messenger to overtake the Great Medicine Man and 
iflotlttcola implore him to return and cure her. Though he came as 
'09 t;lst ;ls his pony could carry him. he was not able to cure 

the Little squaw. When they attempted to do anything 
for her, she turned wearily away, and whispered faintly. 
"Dancing ('loud tired, Go away." 

Spotted Tail had come to the fort for the surgeon, and 
the surgeon had gone, bu1 he declared there was nothing 
the matter with her except thai she was starving herself 
to death. 

For almost a month she lay in her tent rarely eating 
or drinking anything, and barely a bite or two when she 
ate at all. One morning as Spotted Tail stood looking sor- 
rowfully down at her, she feebly motioned him to come 
nearer. She whispered a few broken almost unintelligible 
words to him. In a few moments she had breathed her last. 

lie had understood a few words about "fort," 
"ponies'" and "grave on the bluff", and his active imagin- 
ation furnished the rest. He hastened to the fort and se- 
cured permission to bury her in the soldiers' buring "■round. 
"She want." he said. Then he decided that he must have 
a "while man's funeral" preached by the chaplain. An 
interpreter who had come with messages for the company, 
assisted so that all the braves and squaws might understand. 
The two spotted ponies were killed, and their skins, 
stretched on rude frames, were put up above the grave. 
Spotted Tail himself seemed almost to have forgotten his 
grief in his interest in the preparations, but the squaws 
moaned and wailed enough for the whole tribe. 

As Spotted Tail was leaving the fort. Dick reached 
out his hand to him. and said: 

"I'm sorry for you, mighty sorry. Greal Chief. Danc- 
ing Cloud was the best and most beautiful little squaw 
I ever knew." 

At first he frowned, but gradually his fact' cleared. 
He looked steadily into Dick's eyes for a few seconds, then 
drew from beneath his blanket a beaded wampum bag and 
a carved redstone pipe with a long stem of polished box- 

"Remember Spotted Tail." he said as he pressed the 
articles into Dick's hand. "Spotted Tail treat white man 
fair when not cheated. 'Red Beard' an honest man." and 
he walked away. 

The tribe went north soon afterwards and Port Loraine 
saw them no more. A few months later the army of the 
west, was recalled, and not long after that, the close of the 
war sent the men homeward. Although most of the men 
discarded every ounce of unnecessary baggage, Dick Weldon 
carried the pipe and wampum bag to his Virginia home. 
When he told the story, in after years, lie always ended by 
saying : 

"I've always been curious to know just what caused 
the squaw's death." 

One day he told it to a man who had spent a greal 
deal of time among the Indians, especially the tribes of the 

"The girl committed suicide by systematic starvation,'' 
said the traveller. "I've known several cases of a. similar 
nature. The North American Indian is the only race thai 
has the fortitude to carry it out."

%, Sonnet 

Would that my talents were for nobler things,— 

To charm the ages with a lasting lay; 

To crowd my bit of canvas with array 
Of pageants, purple, and the pomp of kings; 
With soft-toned harmonies from trembling strings, 

The world enslaved by lingering sound to sway; 

With quickening touch to mold the pliant clay, — 
Till bards should sound my praise a thousand springs. 
Yet ever to my hand a task I find, 

A tale to tell, a common song to sing, 
A smile to cheer a weary one, to bind 

With tender art a sparrow's broken wing. 
Trusting the deeds unknown, like stars by day, 
In that last night may gleam along my way. 


Irlossie's plan 




IIERJ] was not a happier maiden in Haverville 
than little Flossie Strand, as she tripped down 
the street from the village post office. She slip- 
ped and slid along the snowy path, and the De- 
cember wind tossed her fluffy locks in every di- 
rection; but she did not mind the cold. Her cheeks were 
aglow with warmth, and her eyes fairly sparkled with 
youthful joy. as she brushed hack the disheveled hair' from 
her forehead. 

Oh, it was too good to be true! How sweet it was to 
be alive; to live in Haverville; to be the pretty little girl 
she was. and have a brother Hob that went to college; and 
to — perhaps it was an apple-tree twig, that, drooping with 
snow, brushed her glowing cheeks, caused her to knit her 
eyebrows for a moment into a pretty little frown: at any 
rate, a wave of color swept over her face and crept beneath 
the ermine furs in which her chin rested. Her eyes. Inn. 
looked suspiciously towards the ground. But her eyes 
were down-cast only for a moment. 

Bob had come home that xevy morning. That was 
enough to make glad the heart of any sister; for Bob was 
her only brother, and. she had once thought, the hand- 
somest and best boy on earth. Bu1 Ibis was not all. Bob 
bad broughl news. The Brownleys were going south and 
George was coming a week earlier than she had expected. 
irge would spend one nighl at home and the rest of the 
whole vacation he would spend in Haverville. 

r George was Bob's college chum, and -well, lie had 
been visiting at tbe Strand home a great many times be- 

fore, and often when Bob was not there. This was nothing 
strange, however; for, besides being eighteen years old 
and tin prettiest girl in Haverville, Flossie was a perfect 
romp and torn-boy — at least that was what many people 
in Haverville said. Bob had been her life-companion. 
Before he went to college he had been ever at her side, it 
made no difference whether they were riding, fishing, row- 
ing, skating, or golfing. Add to these accomplishments 
the fact that she was bewrtchingly pretty and it is little 
wonder that she could till Bob's place when George came 
visiting. The people of Haverville had been so accustomed 
to seeing Hob and Flossie rollicking about the country to- 
gether like two boys, that it seemed no more than natural 
when the same companionship grew between her and 
George. Not even Bob suspected that George and Flossie 
were more to each other than jolly playmates. Not a soul 
on earth except George could have understood the rapture 
that thrilled her little being when she was in his presence. 
"How charming'' she thought; "That Harriet should 
he coming while George is here. I wonder how she will 
like George? 1 don't see how she can care for that Roy 
Desbrow. It must be because he can play the piano better 
than she, and writes poetry. How different he is from 
George! It is dreadful how he blushes and stammers when 
he is with Harriet. Still, he thinks the world of her. 
And really he is a little handsome if his bashfulness did 
not make him so awkward. Poor Harriet! She must have 
a dreadful time with him. Why, as long as she has known 
him, she is hardly acquainted with him yet ! And she 


makes all the advances possible. He cannot help knowing 
that she cares for him. He will be wild with joy when he 
hears that she is coming. I wonder if she wrote him? I 
saw him opening an envelope like the one I received from 
her this evening. I wish she would ignore him altogether 
when she comes. I would serve him right. A man who 
is hopelessly in love and has too much pride, or too little 
courage, to make it known ought to be taught a lesson. 1 
wish Harriet would find — Oh, I have a plan ! ' ' 

Her sweetly curved lips parted in a smile, and, way 
down in the depths of a huge muff, a dainty pair of hands 
were clasped in delight. 

' ' Oh, I know George will agree to it ' ', she said — almost 
audibly — "He is such a jolly fellow and always ready for 
fun ; and Harriet — poor girl, she would agree to anything 
that would raise the courage of that dreadful timid Roy 
Desbrow. It is strange how a beautiful, accomplished girl 
like Harriet can care for such a provoking creature. "Why, 
he is a perfect girl! He can't do anything but thump the 
piano and play tennis. Still, Harriet wishes with all her 
heart to win him, and Harriet is the best cousin and the 
most lovable girl in the world. If my plan should ever 
work ! Bob must not know about it. He is so slow to un- 
derstand, that he would never permit us to undertake it. 
George and Harriet and I shall form a triumvirate. The 
plan and its secrecy shall be our undivided empire. How 
George will be amused! He is just the dear boy to enter 
into a joke. And Roy Desbrow — ". 

Flossie simply fluttered with delight when she thought 
of the consternation and despair her busy little brain was 
preparing for the future torment of that "provokingly" 
timid youth. 

"I wonder if Roy cares as much for her as I do for 
George?" she continued in thought, as she turned from the 
street up a broad drive-way inclosed by trees. "Oh, if I 
knew he did I could not treat him this way ! I just 
couldn't do it! But he can't. I know he can't. If he did, 
he would not be so backward. Besides, it is for his benefit 
as well as for Harriet's. They will both thank me for it 
in the end. I know how glad they will be. I can tell that 
by thinking "what a death it would be to lose George." 

She had reached the stone steps of a massive old co- 
lonial dwelling. The snow creaked briskly beneath her feet 
as she hurried across the broad portico, eager to tell the 

Bob was delighted, as were Mr. and Mrs. Strang. 
Harriet had always been Bob's favorite cousin. Next to 
Flossie, she was the most interesting and companionable 
girl he knew. The company would be complete now. The 
mistletoe, the sleighing, the skating, everything would be 
made perfect by the addition of Harriet's company. 

Bob and Flossie were the busiest young people in the 
village that afternoon. A whole two-weeks' program had 
to be mapped out and approved by them in the course of 
the evening. Sleighing, skating, parties, Christmas calls, 
quiet afternoons to themselves, a hundred different weighty 
matters demanded their attention. Still everything was 
arranged to the entire satisfaction of both, except in one 

Bob mentioned inviting Roy Desbrow to spend at 
home with them the afternoon following Christmas. Flos- 
sie was sitting on the piano chair. When she heard Roy's 
name she slowly faced towards the piano and began to turn 
the leaves of a folio of new dance music, all the time gazing 




absently ;it the notes with an air of preoccupation. Still 
Hob <lid not notice the change in her demeanor, until she 
anise, walked over to the sofa, on which he was sitting, 
and sal down on his knee. But when she clasped one of 
itlolUiCOla his big, muscular arms in a pair of slender little hands, 
'Q9 and looked up into his face with a beseeching smile, be- 

hind which lurked an artful look of half -concealed triumph, 
he knew that something was wrong. 

'"What is it, Flossie, you little captivator .' Fate it- 
self could not deny you. 

'All nail, great master! grave sir, hail! I come 
To answer thy best pleasure; be't to fly, 
To swim, to dive into the fire, to ride 
On I be curled clouds; to thy strong bidding, task 
Ariel, and all bis quality.' " 

"Ob. Bob! How eloquent you are! But you are too 
big for Ariel. Besides, you would look funny flying or 
riding on the clouds: and it would be dreadful to think 
of your divine' into the fire ! Yon might swim, but I am not 
going to ask yon to do even that. I have only a little re- 
quest to make, and yon must grant it. I want you to prom- 
ise me not to ask K'oy Desbrow to come here except upon 
the most formal occasions, while George and Harriet are 

"Why. what mi earth is the matter, Flossie?" 
"It's just a little surprise, Bob, that Harriet and I 
are preparing for him. You will know all about it in a. 
feu weeks, but it is impossible for me to tell yon now. 
Will yon promise me. Bob? Please leave it to US. I as- 
sure thai no harm to anybody will come of if." 

"Ob. I I don't see bow I can, Flossie; hang it all! 
Roy's the best fellow in town, even if be is a little timid 
and lacks those rough-rider airs, that ymi girls admire. 

Above all, he is, my best friend, and what will he think if 
I slight him in this manner.' You know that he will want 
to meet Harriet." 

"But can't you trust me. Bob.' I am willing to as- 
sume all the responsibility. However bad Roy may fee! 
at the time, he will feel all the gladder in the future. Fie 
upon my Ariel! Is this the way he rides upon the clouds 
and dives in to the fire .' 

'If thou more murmur'st, I will rend an oak. 
And peg thee in his knotty entrails, till 
Thou has howled away twelve winters.'" 
You little imp. you are a born diplomatist. I promise." 
And Bob loked down with admiration into the face of his 
pretty sister, who regarded him with eyebrows playfully 
contracted into the semblance of a commanding frown. 

Poor Bob went to bed that night in a puzzled state of 
mind. It was easy enough to estimate the supporting 
strength of a steel girder, or the pressure resistance of a 
steam boiler; but the power of feminine magnetism was 
an incomprehensible mystery to him. 

When Christmas day dawned upon the little town of 
llaverville, the world was shrouded in white. A million 
diamonds sparkled from every tree. The frost creaked 
noisily under Hie gliding sleiidis. When the sun rose over 
the eastern hills and touched the drooping tree-tops with 
his rays, masses of melting snow began to fall along the 
Font paths and make impressions in the smooth surface like 
the tracks of a thousand curious animals. Little birds 
flitted in and out among the evergreens, or lighted upon the 
sidewalk in search of food. Save the occasional rustle of 
a pine bough as it broke away from its snowy burden, or 
the distant tinkle of a sleigh bell, all was quiet in the vi- 


cinity of the, Strand home throughout the early forenoon. 
But shortly before ten o'clock the scene changed. 

Just as the first bell was ringing in the belfry of the 
old church across the street, the doors of the Strand man- 
sion opened and a merry crowd issued from the hallway. 
In front, walked a tall man almost as large as Bob and 
strikingly handsome ; by his side, a very beautiful girl with 
black hair and eyes. Bob and Flossie, who immediately 
followed, frequently addressed the young lady as Harriet 
and the man as George. Mr. and Mrs. Strand, who brought 
up the rear seemed hardly older than forty and every bit 
as full of youthful spirits as the young people who pre- 
ceeded them. Down the long driveway they walked. Oc- 
casionally a peal of girlish laughter broke upon the air: 
and once, a frightened little scream, when Flossie slipped 
and would have fallen had it not been for the support of 
Bob's strong arm. 

More than one glance was directed at the visitors of 
the Strand Home that morning, as they crossed the street 
and passed up the stone-paved walk to the church. Nor 
did curiosity end at the door. At least a score of pretty 
maids, almost as many youths, and not a few eagle-eyed, 
conspiring mothers would have been compelled to confess 
the Strand pew an excuse for neglecting their prayers at 
that particular Christmas service, had they been brought 
to account. But there was one timid, yet eager, glance 
amid all that throng of mingled piety, curiosity, and in- 
difference that was prompted by something more than idle- 

Just as the organist was starting the prelude to a 
Christmas carol, a tall young man with delicate, yet hand- 
some, features walked up the aisle and took a place in the 
choir. At first, he did not seem to notice the Strands, al- 

though they sat directly in front of him. But if the dark- 
eyed little maid that sat next to him had been looking at 
him instead of at George Brownley, when the prelude 
drew to a close, she would have seen his eyes suddenly 
drop from the Strand pew to the railing of the alter, j-HonttCOhl 
and the color suddenly depart from his contracted lips. 09 

For Roy Desbrow Avas as sensitive as he was timid. Har- 
riet's presence at church with George Brownley appealed 
to him only in one light. That was that he was in danger 
of losing the place in her affections that he thought he was 
in a fair way of gaining. From that moment he was in 
torment. Flossie noticed every detail of his discomfiture, 
and could hardly wait until the benediction had been pro- 
nounced to give vent to her enthusiasm. 

"Oh Harriet!", she said that evening, when she and 
Harriet were in the drawing room, while Bob and George 
were smoking in the library: "Didn't I tell you it would 
succeed? Did you see how poor Roy looked.' lie is des- 
perate, lie must speak his mind! If he doesn't propose to 
you before two weeks. I will give you George to keep, you 
deal' old girl. Don't you think you have just the smartest 
little cousin in the world? Really, don't you.'" 

Throughout the whole two weeks that George and Har- 
riet remained in llaverville, Flossie's plan was carried out. 
Poor Roy missed the pleasant afternoons that he had been 
accustomed to spend at the Strand home during previous 
vacations. His disappointment was made all the more bit- 
ter by the thought that George Brownley was enjoying 
Harriet's company while he was compelled to stay away. 
It is true that he was sometimes invited to parties, to- 
gether with crowds of other young people; but Harriet 
treated him almost as a stranger, and seemed ever to be in 
the presence of George Brownley. Strange to say. Flossie 


was kinder to him than she had ever been before. She 
seemed to have lost her old coldness, and was almost like a 
sister. One would have thought, Roy reflected; that she 
understood the torment he was in, if that had been pos- 
iitoriticola sible. Flossie looked on with secret delight at the success 
'09 °f h er "plan", although her tender little heart was almost 

breaking at the thought of the pain Roy was in. 


At last, the holidays were drawing to a close. The 
snow had disappeared beneath the warm, but transient 
rays of a January sun; and the ice was breaking up in the 
river. Mud was everywhere. The people of Haverville 
had begun to turn their minds from the relaxation of 
holiday amusements to the affairs of every-day life. The 
few days of sunshine that had come the week following 
New War's Day. had ended in a period of cloudiness. 
The clouds gradually thickened, and finally a steady, driz- 
zling rain descended upon the land, enveloping everything 
in a dismal, misty gloom. 

On the afternoon of this depressing day, Flossie was 
silting alone in the drawing room, trying to become in- 
terested in a new translation of Moliere, which Bob had 
seen rendered and had considered good. George and Har- 
riet had both departed that morning; Harriet for home, 
and George for the University, to consult his class officer 
aboul a fellowship that was open to students possessing a 
baccalaureate degree. Bob had gone out after dinner, say- 
ing that he wished to visil some of the fellows before he 
departed to finish his last course in college. Flossie was 

left 1,, herself. 

"Oh dear!", she said, throwing her book aside; "How 
dismal it is! I wish Bob would come back. I wonder if 
George is thinking of me. I know he is. though. It is 

only two weeks since Christmas. Yesterday it seemed but 
a day: but this evening, it seems a month. Oh. I almost 
forgot! On Christmas day. I told Harriet that it would 
not. be more than two weeks until Roy would propose to 
her. The two weeks will expire this evening. And just 
to think that Harriet has gone home and my plan has failed 
wretchedly! And think of the trouble that I imposed up- 
on George! All my pains were for nothing. Oh, it is just 
simply miserable! It would not be so bad if the sun were 
shining. I don't believe people could stand it to live 
through such gloomy days as these, if they did not think 
of the happiness they were to have in the future. I am 
sure I couldn't!" 

Just then, Flossie heard a familiar foot-step on the 
pavement, ami, turning her head, saw a well-known form 
cross the portico. A moment later the door opened and 
Bob entered. 

"Oh, Bob! I am glad you have come. It is dreadfully 
lonesome here. I am tired of listening to the patter of the 
rain, and it is so dark that I can hardly see to read. Why, 
Bob. you old sage; what are you looking so solemn about? 
Have you just discovered through astronmical calculations 
that the world is coming to an end.' Or has (Jncle Wesley 
told you again that your Latin is "humbug".' Or — what is 
the matterf" 

"I have something surprising to tell yon. Flossie. I 
dropped in to see Roy as T came home, and found the poor 
fellow almost crazy, lie told me that he had proposed to 
Harriet and she had refused him. I can't understand it. 
Is this some joke that you and Harriet are playing upon 
him.' If it is, you are carrying it entirely too far." 

"<)h. Bob. it can't be true! \{ny must be insane. Why. 
even you know that Harriet was hopelessly in love with 


him. We have been planning- for two weeks to get Roy 
to propose. There is a mistake. I know there is. What 
reason could Harriet have to refuse him?" 

"She simply said that an engagement was impossible 
because she loved another; but of course that is not true. 
She is trilling with Roy's feelings, audi I think it is posi- 
tively mean for her to act this way. I almost forgot to 
tell you that I have a letter for yon. I think it is from 

Flossie seized the letter eagerly, some way feeling that 
it contained an explanation of the mystery — for mystery 
it was to her, and so puzzling that it almost overwhelmed 
her reason to accept as true the results of this problem, 
the factors of which she thought she so thoroughly under- 

Bob, pursing his lips as if to whistle walked over to the 
window and stood looking out at the rain-drops as they 
created tiny commotions in the puddles of water. He 
thought what a strange world he lived in. Life would be 
perfectly simple if it dealt with nothing but mechanics ; 
but woman made everything wrong. Then the splash of a 
big rain-drop attracted his attention, and he calculated 
how much aerial space it would occupy if expanded into 
steam. This calculation finished, he again thought of Roy, 
and tried to calculate how much judgment a man had who 
would trust his happiness to the caprice of woman. The 
consciousness had not yet dawned upon him that this was 
a hopeless problem in which that intangible factor, woman, 
figured ; when he heard a curious sound, like a smothered 
sob. at the opposite of the room, and turned round. 

Flossie had flung herself into a chair, and was lean- 
i 1 1 Li- up a table, with her head buried in her arms. Her lit- 
tle figure was shaking with suppressed sobs. As Bob 
quickly stepped to her side, a comb fell from her head and 
was crushed beneath his feet, while a waving mass of hair 
rolled down over her trembling arm and almost touched 
the floor. 

' ' Flossie ! what 's wrong ! ' ' 

In reply, she swung one arm from under her head and 
dropped a crushed note from her fingers. "Oh Bob", she 
moaned, "How could she do it — when I was trying to help 
her too ! ' ' 

Bob unfolded the paper and read, while the rain heat 
monotonously on the shutters outside, and Flossie poured 
forth her grief in heart-broken sobs. 
' ' Dearest Flossie : 

I know you can never forgive us; but we took the only 
course possible. It would have made life miserable for all 
three of us, if George had maried you when he discovered 
that his feeling for you was all a fancy, and that I was 
the only girl in the world he could ever really care for. 
I know that you will always hate me, but I swear that I 
would have given up George without the least hesitation, 
if I had thought that your happiness could have been 
saved by doing so. I don't think that I would ever have 
known George well enough to think him the most lovable 
boy on earth, if you had not conceived that plan to entrap 
Roy Desbrow. 

Your affectionate Harriet."

Cheat River Near Mt. Chateau. 


jNontftpb i:i|e :j3r op licet} of 
Class D9 

Last Thursday afternoon 1 became so tired of study- 
ing thai I shut my honk and started off for a Long walk. 
In about ten minutes I was out of town and climbing the 
hills on my way to Point Breeze, my favorite haunt. "When 
I had passed al! the farm-houses, and felt free to do as 
I pleased. I waved my arms wildly in the air. and gave 
three cheers for the class of "(ID. 

"Bravo, Junior", cried a voice behind me. "Do it 
'again, by Zeus!" 

I turned quickly to sec who had spoken, and started 
back with surprise on beholding a fellow with winged feet 

and a snaky cane. 

"Why. hello. Hermes!" said 1. "I hope you have not 
conic after inc. I am not ready to cross the river Styx 


"Oh, no. Junior," said Hermes. "You will be far 
Uglier and older than you arc now. before Charon ferries 
you over to Hades. 1 have a holiday today, and thought 
it would lie fun to visii the West Virginia University. 
Charon says every dead student I bring him from W. V. 
r. comes without money enough to pay his ferriage, so I 
fell sure I would find a sporty, extravagant crowd. Hut 
when 1 found von in the Library, moaning over vour 

Greek lesson, and wishing you could see the world as 
Charon did when he came up from Hades for a day's 
visit. 1 thought it would be greater sport to show you some 
miracles, than to have a carousal with the law-students. 

"Hood!" cried I. "And will you roll some moun- 
tains together, so that we can get on top of them, and see 
down into the world ! You did that for Charon, you know.'' 

"Yes, by Zeus!" said Hermes. "Help me to roll Hor- 
sey 's Knob up onto Point Breeze, first of all. That is well 
done. Xow the Cheat Mountains. Bless me. Junior, it is 
done already! Now come with me to the highest point. 
There, do you see all 

"All, Hermes, but very dimly. Pronounce for me 
the incantation from Homer which made Charon see and 
hear so clearly. " 

"Certainly, I will do so. (I took the mist from your 
eyes which before was there.) Can you sec now'" 

"Oh yes. I see everything, and hear quite plainly. 
Nothing interests me so much as our Juniors, though. I 
see Ada Xeal giggling in the library, and Herman Koelz 
at the show laughing at Tony. But say. Hermes, this is 
nothing new. Couldn't you say some words over me. and 
let me see the Juniors as they will be fifteen years from 

"■lust as easy. (In order that you may know both Cod 
and man.) Now you may look into the future. Why. what 
funny things do you see already.'" 

"Ha! Ha! John Hall looks so queer with a mustache, 
and so big and fat. He is sitting with his child on bis 
knee, reading Puck, of which he is the famous editor, it 
seems. Who would have thoughl that his training on the 
Monticola Board would have led to this! 

•J 12 

"This isn't any Junior, is it, driving a yoke of oxen.' 
Oh, yes, I see. It is Herman Koelz. What do you say, 
Hermes' A millionaire farmer down in Argentine Re- 
public? Well, what is he working like that for?" 

"My dear Junior," said Hermes, "If you had had 
the classe of '09 to manage for a whole year, you would 
want something slow to work at yourself. He has simply 
loved to drive oxen ever since his Junior year in W. V. U. " 

"What devoted couple is this, just coming back from 
their honeymoon trip to Europe. Virginia Neal and Cyrus 
Van Bibber, as I am alive! How did this happen, 

"That's easy. They fell in love while practicing the 
Junior play, and have been in love ever since. Why, they 
were engaged for fourteen years!" 

"Dear me! and where 's Ada Neal? Oh, I see. The 
devoted wife of a noted lawyer and hunter, and a society 
leader. But in spite of her social duties, I am glad to be- 
hold, she finds time to teach her children Anglo-Saxon. 

"So Mr. McJilton married Number Three, Woman's 
Hall, and moved down South ? I am not at all astonished. 

"And this is Walter Reitz strolling down Broadway, 
with a silk hat and gold-headed cane? I see it is, for he 
has Cid along with him. Even after becoming a famous 
and busy lawyer he does not seem to have broken the habit 
of strolling which he learned at W. V. U. 

"This, 0. Hermes, must be Clerc Smith, who is nurs- 
ing his boils and his babies both at the same time. He 
said he was going to be some woman's husband when he 
grew up, and now, alas ! he must stay at home with the 
children while his beautiful wife attends dances and 
parties. Poor Clerc ! 

"Hermes, I do not recognize this solemn and pom- 
pous lady in a black velvet gown, who seems to be at the 
head of some great institution. Who is she?" 

"That, Junior, is Mabel Stout. She is the Presi- 
dent of a school for the daughters of English nobility in 
Port Elizabeth, South Africa." 

"We expected something great of her. And this great 
railroad President, who manages all the South African 
railroads for his majesty the King of England, who is he?" 

"Do you not recognize him .' Perhaps his flowing beard 
has altered his looks. That, my dear friend, is C. C. 
Sheppard, whose fame as contributor to the Monticola 
reached the ears of King Edward. His majesty was so 
pleased with the youth that he inquired as to Mr. Shep- 
pard 's choice of profession, and gave him this great office, 
with a princely salary." 

"You do not need to tell me, Hermes, the name of this 
gay and fashionable young lady, who is tripping along 
the streets of Paris with a poodle under her arm, and a 
handsome young man at her side. It is Rosa Folau." 

"Yes, that is Rose, but she is now the Duchess de 
Chevanne. The Due de Chevanne is walking with her." 

"Dear me, how romantic! And is not this Frank 
Gibbs, the elegantly attired gentleman who has stopped 
to kiss her hand?" 

"Yes, that is Frank. He has come to Europe for a 
short vacation. His life as an actor and singer has worn 
him out, and he will not return to the stage for a year. 
He, too, began his brilliant career at W. V. U., on the 
night of the Junior play. 

"Ah, Hermes, I know this bright and smiling lady, 
who is so beloved by the poor in New York City, and seems 






to be more renowned than Jane Addams. It is Ada Moon. 
Her smile has not rubbed off yet. 

"Look at that dude walking along with five girls, who 
all seem to be in love with him. Well, he is fascinating, 
but I do not think he should flirt so boldly. By Zeus! 
Hermes, it is Hugh Barnes!" 

L 'Ih' does nothing else. () Junior, but flirt with the 
ladies, and spend his father's fortune. lie is the most 
heartless lady-killer in Chicago, and breaks hearts by the 

"The Congressman from Montana, Hermes, whom I 
see in Washington — that is Hubert Snyder, is it not.' 
How eloquently he talks! It reminds me of his speech 
in favor of Junior Prom. I felt sure then that he would 
be a second Daniel Webster. 

"•I. B. Headley, Heal Estate. One of the richest men 
in Washington, did you say. Hermes.' That is he. walking 
out of his private office, 1 suppose. What makes him walk 
so slowly, I Iermes .' " 

"lie is not in a hurry, .Junior. And anyhow, he 
formed the habit of going slow in Mbrgantown, walking 
behind the st reel ears. There comes his friend Holloway, 
the leader of the most celebrated German band in America. 
Isn '1 be a handsome Fellow .' " 

"Yes, indeed! And look. Hermes, at Charles Victor 
Feller! How strange that he lias become a minister! We 
all knew him to be a good, pious boy, but we did not ex- 
ped bim to make bis living by his piety. 

"What is this.' A st reel fair in Charleston? 1 see 
'Howl' Scott, lint why is be bowling so, Hermes?" 

"Because he is paid For it. He is a 'barker' for the 
Fair, anil makes I wenty-live dollars a day advertising tin 1 
snake-woman and the dancing bear, el cetera." 

"Ah, here is Don Ross, lie is asleep. I am surprised 
to see him so idle, bid 1 suppose he has never really been 
able to make up for the sleep he lost, and the energy he 
expended on Monticola work. 

"Dr. Vincent Raumgartner seems very happy and 
contented with the fail- co-ed to whom lie taught library 
science during his Junior year. I see he still has his sweet 
slow smile. 

"Guy Hartley, celebrated illustrator for the Ladies' 
Home Journal and Woman's Home Companion, looks very 
Familial-. Hermes. His first great work was done for the 
Monticola of 'Oil. you know. 

"And here is Tom Gorby, too, political boss of the 
state of Pennsylvania, multimillionaire, and founder of 
libraries. He has had a warm spot in his heart for li- 
braries ever since be met his fate in the one at West Vir- 
ginia University. 

"Alexander Bell has not changed at all. I see, not 
even as to his yellow shoes. His wife must be taking good 
care of him. Rut who is this fat and dignified Uni- 
versity Professor, dear Hermes'" 

"That, Junior, is Dr. Archibald Weaver, authority 
on anatomy and physiology!" 

"This other man I already know by his angelic smile. 
1 see that he. too. is a Professor in the University. I 
wonder why all music teachers are bahlheaded .' Harris 
Aquilla P. Reynolds was not bahlheaded as a Junior. 

"And here is the good Mr. Trent. Why does he 
limp. 1 wonder 

"He has gout from drinking too much wine. Rut 
since he has become Secretary of the United States Treas- 
ury he lias sobered up a little." 


"Ha, Ha! Hermes, I recognize Leo Carlin by his 
curls. Isn't it splendid that he has become so great a poet? 

"And this is Lewis Core listening to the babbling 
Brook ! He seems very happy at his old post. He ought 
to have invited all the Juniors to his wedding, though. 

"How strange that such a strenuous active worker as 
Carrol Cummins should settle down to a life of ease, just 
beeaiise his wife has money. I. can not understand 
Hermes. ' ' 

"That is not so strange, Junior. He never has been 
able to work since he took that hard course in Sociology. 
It crippled him for life, poor fellow ! ' ' 

"What a grand imposing personage! Yes, Hermes, 
I recognized him as Roy Hall, but I did not think of him 
as a general in the United States Army. So he married 
the school teacher, didn't he?" 

"Is this Walter King, this famous editor of the 
Mother's Magazine? We knew he would become a great 
man, because he always wore a dress suit, white gloves, 
and a stove pipe hat to every show. 

"I see a familiar form away over in India, Hermes, 
trying to show the natives how to play basketball. Yes, 
it must be John Ely, doing missionary work. 

"That is James Ferrell, did you say, Heimies, that 
cowboy you are pointing out to me. down in Texas ? I will 
not believe it, Mercury. That fellow is swearing, and 
James Ferrell was a Sunday school boy at W. Y. U. 

"I can tell that man over in Edinboro by his hat- 
band. It is John Finlayson. I am glad to know that he 
is being successful as a Geometry teacher in the University 
there. He was always interested in Geometry at W. V. U., 
and took ever so much work in that subject. 

"How we are deceived in people! I always thought 
Tom Fitzgerald would become a great preacher, and here 
he is, singing in vaudeville ! Of course he makes more 
money, and gets to wear a wig, but I am disappointed. 

"What is Harry Griffin doing? Well, well, he is 
having his picture taken for the World's Work, because 
he has written a famous law book ! It was always a weak- 
ness with Harry to love to sit for his picture. 

"This society woman in Charleston is Mae Sullivan, 
I see. The Governor's wife, did you say, Hermes? 1 
knew her by her marcel waves and enchanting smile. 

"So Carrie Dague went back to her beloved West 
Liberty. How the words of wisdom roll from her lips as 
she teaches Greek and mythology! 

' ' Poor Viola Wolf ! Isn 't it sad that she married for 
money, instead of taking Mr. G. She has all that wealth 
can bestow and yet is not happy. I am glad she has 
applied for a divorce. 

"Who is this celebrated dancing master, Hermes, the 
one who is so popular out in Hawaii? He looks familiar. 

"That, O Junior, is Reggie Cummins. He became 
proficient in h?s ait al the Pan-IIelenic dances m Phillips' 

"Ah, I see Crystal Courtney. She said she never 
would teach, but her art pupils in Chicago evidently like 
her. Why didn't she ever marry.'" 

"Give her time, my dear Junior. She will be mar- 
ried next month to Patterson, '09, the famous inventor." 

"Oh, yes! I know him, and I know Brooks Hutchin- 
son, too. whom I see over yonder. He is taking things 
easy, I perceive." 






"Why shouldn't he? Polities made him rich before 
lie was thirty, and he is now spending his fortune in 
behalf of athletics in Slate Universities." 

'This is .Mr. Lloyd, I am sure. His military hearing 
is not to be mistaken. No wonder he has a position as in- 
structor in military tactics at West Point. He is Na- 
poleon over again. 

"is this Tim McCarthy? But I recognize his char- 
acteristic features; it is surely he. The newspaper he 
is reading says he is champion of the world in Baseball. 
Bully for him! Put what is Mary Atkeson doing, 
Efermes .'" 

''She.' Why she is lecturing to a London audience on 
'How to Speak English'. See how surprised they look.'

"You don't mean to tell me Cleophus Swecker is a 
star in society! Goodness, how did he ever wean himself 
from his gray sweater ! 

"And here is MacMillan, our greal violinist. What 
is he doing in Switzerland, Hermes?" 

"Merely visiting the pleasure resorts. Junior, lie is 
making a tour of Europe. " 

"Porter Hardman has married the Baroness of (iold- 
castle, hasn't he.' The Rhodes scholarship made him 
famous, but the co-eds would have liked rather to have 
had him stay in W. V. P. without any fame than to have 
him leave them so soon. 

"Mr. Shultz, of Cincinnati, looks happy. Why is he 
so elated, Hermes .'" 

"lie is exulting OVer Ihe success of his book 'How to 


.be a Social Star. ' It is very interesting, and based on 

"There is Lillian Smith in the Congressional Library 
at Washington. She seems very busy, Hermes." 

"She isn't though. Her position pays well, but the 
work is not strenuous. What she is doing now is flirting, 
pure and simple. She has about six unmarried Congress- 
men on the string and is trying to decide which to take." 

"Is this a Junior, Hermes, this lady with a bird-cage 
and a suit case, who is travelling in Greece?" 

"Yes, truly. That is Susan Moore, who is satisfying 
her desire for travel. She is now perfectly happy." 

"And I, Hermes, I see my grave down there among 
the green meadows, so I must be happy, too, because I am 
through with my work. What does the inscription say? 
It is in Greek, and I have forgotten my vocabulary." 

"It says: "Here lies the bones of that unfortunate 
young woman who undertook the work on organizations 
for the Monticola. Count the number of the senior organi- 
zations and you will know why she is dead." 

"I haven't seen Lorena Fries, yet, Hermes. But 
here she is in New York City, Editor-in-Chief of the New 
York Tribune." 

"Yes, Junior, and every editorial she writes contains 
the words! 'Such was the decision of the class of '09 — or. 
'that is how we did it in the Class of '09'. The editorial 
staff calls her ' '09' behind her back. Even her shoe-buttons 
are engraved with '09. 

"Let me shout down to her, Hermes. Good for you, 
Lorena ! Keep it up ! Hurrah for the class of '09 !" 

I howled this with all my might, forgetting that 
Hei-mes said it would break the spell. There was an 
awful jar. a deadening thumping sound, and when I re- 
covered from my bewilderment I was on Point Breeze all 
alone. I never can forgive myself for disobeying Hermes, 
for I didn't get to see what was going to happen to the 
rest of the Juniors. But I know this much : If Hermes gives 
me another chance, I'll try to tell you all next year what 
you are going to die of.

Synopsis of an (Occurence at 
Roman's Hall 

Time, a night in early fall; 

Hour, 10:31; place, Woman's Hall; 

Hall door locked, girl outside, 

Dean within disposed to chide, 

Escort, preacher, young and brave 

Would risk his life, the girl to save. 

Parlor windows softly tried; 

One, not locked comes open wide. 

Preacher inside in a trice, 

Helps girl in, but pays the price. 

A chilly voice, a scathing tone, 

Proclaims the wrong that he has done; 

Girl, in fright, flees upstairs, 

Preacher mutely says his prayers; 

Dean's curl papers shake with rage, 

Preacher longs for parsonage, 

And not quite ready yet to die, 

Gathers strength enough to fly, 

Arrives at parsonage safe, but sore, 

(N. B. — He now enters Woman's Hall by door.)

Break the political slate that would fasten itself on our University Athletic affairs. 

What This Ticket Stands For 

.Men with the best interests of the University at heart want lo see the end of fraternity politics as the 
dominent influence in student affairs. With this in view a movement to place an Independent Ticket in the 
Held has been started. The candidates were selected because of their fitness for positions on the Athletic 
Board and regardless of fraternity or other affiliations. This ticket is pledged to work for the best interests of 
the student body in Athletics and not for anybody's political advancement. Should they be elected we are as- 
sured no factional or fraternity considerations will influence their judgment.

The Committee on Classification and Grades, with the 
co-operation of various professors of the University, has 
deemed it wise to offer several new courses. It is their in- 
tention to give credit for work, for which there has been 
no credit given in the past. 

The Catalogue. 

Professor Armstrong, head of the English Department, 
offers a course in the University Catalogue. He is well 
prepared to make this course excellent and beneficial, as 
he has done considerable research work along this line, 
ever since he has been connected with this institution. We 
might state, also, that Professor Armstrong spent part of 
the Christmas vacation, and the remainder of the summer 
vacation after summer school (except when holding In- 
stitutes) in working up his material for this course. The 
special advantage the student will gain from such a course 
will be that he will be able to determine if he is a Prep, or 
a Senior, and will not have to trust himself to the tender 
mercies of the Committee on Classification and Grades. 

Professor Patterson and Mr. Smith are also authorities 
on the catalogue, having done a great amount of research 
work on Registration Day. They will assist Professor 

The amount of credit given will be one course. Text 
books used are all back numbers of the catalogues, and 
bulletins of any sort, printed by the University. 

Physical Training. 

Arrangements have been made with Director Chez to 
give one-tenth of a course credit to all students walking 

around the circle twenty times between each class period. 
One requirement is that young men walk with young men, 
and young women, with young women. It is also required 
that the students do not dash around wildly, as if taking 
part in a track meet, but must walk slowly, deliberately, 
taking deep breaths which exercise the diaphram suffi- 
ciently. Dr. Truscott and Mr. Baumgartner, whose class- 
room windows command an excellent outlook of the cam- 
pus, will stand on guard, to see that no one breaks the 
rules. Besides, reliable persons will be stationed on the 
campus, winter and summer, in order that there may be no 


The unmarried professors of the University have long 
discussed the advisability of offering a credit, say one-half 
course, at the least, to all students doing good, honest work 
along the line of studies which the professors have mapped 
out. With the coming of Mr. Goodrich, it is now possible 
for this dream to be realized. 

A number of students have already enrolled. Among 
them are Miss Smith, Miss Clifford, Miss Lemley, Ada and 
Virginia Xeal, Miss Parks, and Miss Montgomery ; Mr. 
Reitz, Mr. Becker, Mr. Hodges, Mr. Hunter, Mr. Shaffer, 
Mr. Louchery and Mr. Bowers. It also might be stated 
that Mr. Goodrich has a large waiting list of students who 
desire to take the course. Those who were fortunate enough 
to obtain class cards, enrolled early. 

Mr. Goodrich will have full charge of this popular 
course, but will be assisted by many able unmarried mem- 
bers of the faculty, including Dr. Chitwood, Dr. Reese, 




Mr. Simeon Smith, and Mr. Baumgartner. The text-books, 
which have been ordered from the Lovemaker's Book Com- 
pany, have not arrived yet, so it is the intention of the 
above mentioned Professors to read papers and give leet- 
itlonticola ures to the students. Mr. Goodrich will give the opening 
'09 lecture on "The One Woman". Mr. Smith will follow with 

a charming review of "A Young Girl's Wooing". Later, 
Dr. Chitwood ami Dr. Reese will speak on "Love Me Lit- 
tle. Love .Me Long," and "Love is Enough." Mr. Holden 
iias prepared a deep scholarly thesis on "Foiled by Love", 
and Mr. Spence will deliver a clever lecture on "A Loyal 
Heart". One lecture that will be particularly interesting 
is a "Pair of Brown Eyes" by Mi-. Baumgartner. 

The class will meet every night from seven until ten 
in the study room of the Library. There will also be 
special meetings in the afternoon. Although students will 
not receive extra credit by doing work in the stack room, 
or among the reference shelves in the far corner of the 
reading room, still all might help their grades materially 
by doing such work. It is suggested that the students study 
in pairs, in this way, the work will be done more thor- 
oughly, and the results will he better. 

Letter- Writing. 

A charming letter-writing course, conducted by Mr. 
Smith, will he jiiven hereafter. Letters to one's parents 
ami near-and-dear friends are all thai may be submitted. 
Letters In one's parents must be written weekly, on clean 
white paper, with ink. No blots, or si»-ns of hurry are al- 
lowed. The student nmsl not ask for a check more than 
one a month, and it must not he for mure than a hundred 
dollars. One hundred dollars is sufficient to cover all ex- 

penses, such as hoard, room-rent, late registration fees and 
laboratory fees. 

Letters to one's near-and-dear friends must be sensible. 
This is the only requirement, except that they must be 
written daily. Arrangements have been made with the post 
office department of Morgantown, to intercept all letters. 
and all students not complying with the above rules, will 
make below seventy. 

Xo text books will be needed, as Mr. Smith has a vast 
store of knowledge of letter-writing, and will give lectures 
daily. One twentieth course credit is given. 


Heretofore Professor Emory of the Engineering De- 
partment, has given a course in sleeping, to just a chosen 
few of his students. It seems that the fame of the course 
has gone abroad in the land, and Professor Emory has 
been requested to plan the work so that all students regis- 
tered at least as Freshmen, may enter the class. Those who 
have already taken the course speak of both the professor 
and the work in the most glowing terms. Bruce. Tracy 
and Barns starred, sleeping sixty miles an hour. 

In order that the work might not be too much of a 
burden upon one man. Professor Patterson has kindly con- 
sented to assist Professor Emory. Professor Patterson's 
Extra Dry Lecture (blue ribbon brand) is especially worthy 
of mention. 

The text books used are " Hocked in the Cradle of the 
i)eej)", "Sing me to Sleep", "Dreaming", and "Please 
Go 'Way and Let Me Sleep". The lectures will be given 
in the form of Lullabvs. 


The Faculty has made arrangements with the Balti- 
more and Ohio Rail Road to give all students one-third 
course credit a term, or a whole course during the college 
year, for the time spent at the B. & 0. station waiting for 
trains. The faculty has long felt the need of such an ar- 
rangement, as they feel sure it will encourage more stu- 
dents to attend the University. The plan is really unique. 
The ticket and freight agents will serve as time keepers, 
and will hand in reports each term to the class officers. 
In case the student does not leave Morgantown at Christ- 
inas, or at Easter, he will receive one-third credit. When- 
ever there is a landslide on the road, the engineer, fireman 
and conductor will stand with watch in hand, while the 
students shovel away the dirt. Then the above mentioned 
engineer, fireman and conductor will hand in written state- 
ments to Dr. Purinton, giving the exact number of minutes 
the students have worked. The faculty will allow an ad- 
ditional fraction. 

Bureau op Information. 

Professor and Mrs. Know-Ail, who are authorities on 
all questions of good manners and good form, have kindly 
consented to conduct an information bureau for the benefit 
of the students. They will be very glad to answer all 
questions. The correspondent wishing an answer by mail 
should inclose a stamped addressed envelope. 

Is it proper to go to a Pan-Hellenic dance without ask- 
ing permission of the Dean? — Mae Sullivan. 

Your question is difficult to answer, but we should say 
that your action might be considered as proper, in case 
your escort is judicially inclined. 

Will you please recommend a hair tonic? — Shough. 

We consider Ayers' Hair Tonic as par-excellent. It 

costs twenty-five cents a bottle, and can be had at any 
first -class drug store. 

When a man is calling on a young lady, at what 
hour should he leave her home ? — McJilton. 

It is generally customary for the young man to in- 
quire of the young woman the time that he must leave. 
However, when one is calling at the Woman's Hall, it is 
proper to stay until Miss Moore tells him that it is half 
past ten o 'cluck. 

Should a young lady drink soda-water at a drug-store, 
especially when she knows the druggist particularly 
well ? — Anna Jones. 

We may say that such a course is perfectly proper, 
in case you are always well chaperoned. We should sug- 
gest that the Dean of Women might serve in the above men- 
tioned capacity. Dr. Fowler has a good stand-in with her, 

Should I go to dances when one of my very best 
friends does not dance ? — Ada Neal. 

You should not attend all the dances, especially if 
the "friend" prefers that you should not — However, you 
are justified in attending a few. 

Is it not good form to have one's hose, neckties, and 
the border around one's handkerchiefs to match? — Brooks 

We think that it is not only good form, but also de- 
cidedly artistic. It gives one a dapper appearance, and 
distinguishes him from the common herd. 

Will you please tell me how I may lower my voice so 
that it cannot lie heard all over the Library and Woman's 
Hall ?— Emma Bead. 

We advise you to make Grace Jolliffe your constant 






Whal must I do to keep all the young women from 
talking to me in the Library? — Harry Griffin. 

We advise you to cease being s () entertaining, or else 
retiiv from busy active life in the match factory. 

Is there any harm in laughing in a loud voice on all 
occasions .' — Petie Reynolds. 

We can see no possible harm in it, for we have no 
doubt hut that your laugh is very musical. 

Is it a sin to he so chivalrous, that all the girls fall in 
love with me .'—"White" White. 

Fes. A University man should show no deference to 
a Co-ed who assumes to he his equal intellectually. 

Please suggest topics of conversation that can be used 
when one is calling on a young lady. — Herman Koelz. 

We might say that the weather is a good topic of con- 
versation. It is like the poor — it is always with us. Then, 
by way of a change, you might discuss Merry Widow hats 
and College spirit (s). 

Should I wear a dress suit and white gloves at all of 
the Armory dances? — Mark Hanna. 

It is not always necessary to do so, especially at the 
informal dances. Most of the students do not consider such 
a conventional attire necessary.

Seniors and Juniors, many a time and oft. 

In class, on campus, have you cut me dead, 

Ignored my humble bows and trembling mien: 

Still have I borne it with a patient grin; 

For grinning is the badge of all us preps. 

You called me "baby", "infant child" and "Kid", 

And calmly knocked my cap from off my head, 

And all for lack of that which men call age. 

Well then it now appears you need my vote. To go, 

Then, you hunt me up and you say: 

"Prep, we'd like your vote for , you say so, 

You that scarce knew me two short days ago; 

You that have never cared to treat me well; 

To ease my homesick longings, voting is your cry. 

Why should I vote to please you? Should I not say: — 

"Hath a Prep knowledge politic? Is't possible 

A Prep can vote, not being in the clique? or 

Shall I dissemble and with smiling face, 

With eager voice and friendly air, say this: — 

"Good sir, the fellow up for President 

Doesn't know a thing 'bout parliamentary law — 

Yet, he's no worse than is the other. 

Besides he's in the clique. So for these reasons 

I'll vote the ticket that you wish."

Professor Stathers: "Mr. Hodges, translate, II. rom- 
iHonttCOla pera." 

'09 Eodges: "He is broke." 

Professor Stathers: "No, he will be broke." 

Student: "Miss Brown. Dr. Stathers ealls on you 
about every other one, he must think you a good student." 

.Miss Brown: "Oh! it isn't that: it's just because my 
name is common and easy to pronounce. I see I will have 
to change my name, now if you know a man who wants 
to take unto himself a wife, send him around." 

Dr. Purinton, in Psychology class: "Miss Steele, 
when I mention the term, 'man', what do you think of?" 

Miss Steele: "Mankind in general." 

Dr. Purinton : "Are you sure it is not some particular 
man .'" 

(Great laughter by other members of the class.)

By Hickory-Nut White. 


At one of the Armory dances, someone presented Mr. 
Reynolds to Mrs. S. "Petie" bowed and scraped in a very 
proper manner, then asked for a dance. Mrs. S. was 
gracious and kind enough to give him two. Then Mrs. S. 
coquettishly asked if he would remember her when the 
time came for their dance. Again "Petie" did the proper 
act by replying that il would be impossible for him to 
Corgel her. Hut at the same time, he was saying to himself 

"What in the deuce is this woman's name, anyhow.' I've- 
forgotten", and wrote "Jones" down on his program. 

When the seventh dance rolled around, Mr. Reynolds, 
who had forgotten all about Mrs. S., started out in search 
of Miss Jones. He was surprised when that young lady 
told him that she had the seventh dance with some one 
else. "Petie" wondered if there could be another Miss Jones 
present and started out to search for her. Soon he ran 
across Mrs. S. who stopped him and asked: "Have you seen 
a Mr. Reynolds around here any place .' He had this dance 
with me. but he hasn't come around yet. He surely couldn't 
have forgotten me." 


"The monthly cadet hoi) will be held in the armory 
Saturday, January 11, at 8 o'clock, P. M. Captain Eaton 
is to be congratulated upon the excellent work he is doing 
in the capacity of Commandant of Cadets." 


Professor Cox had finished reading the following lines 
from Shakespeare: 

"It is too much of joy: 

And this, and this, the greatest discords. 

(He kisses her) 

Miss Jones: "Professor Cox, what does, 'this and this' 

Professor Cox: "Why, Miss Jones, is it possible you 
don't know? Why it means this: Othello kissed Desde- 
mona. " 

Miss Jones: "But, Professor. I don't see that there is 
anv discord in kissing." 


What made the water pipes freeze up in Woman's 
Hall ? 

Because of Fries and Ice. 

Mr. Smith, in one of his Prep English classes gives 
an exhaustive discourse on the difference between the 
exclamations, "0" and "Oh": — "Now if you were going 
to say. "0 my Country", you would say simply "O". 
But if you should get out of bed in the morning and step 
on a tack you would say "0 — H". 

Miss D: "Was Cilda Smith at Friendship Hill?" 
Miss Jo : " What a silly question ! Do you think she 
would go down there in all that mud, when she couldn't 
have Sir Walter along to spread down his velvet cloak for 
her to walk over .' ' ' 

Young Lady: "Have you ever been at Woman's Hall 
bef ore ? ' '. 

Young Man: "Xo ma'am, but I have been past it 
several times." 


Cadet R. (At the expiration of enlistment) : "I don't 
think that I'll re-enlist." 

Sergeant St. C. : "Better re-enlist, my boy; you'll 
never find a better home than under the old flag." 


Nancy: (Seeing a man in a very distant corner of the 
Study Hall) "That is Fred Koelz; I recognize his feet". 

Mr. Parriot, (In a flight of eloquence) : "I am patriot- 
ic! If every any heart beat more violently with patriot- 
ism, I never felt it. ' '

Professor Morris: "Please hand me one of those 

Bullard (handing him a pyramid) ' 'Will this square

Dr. Reynolds: "Is life worth living after all?" 
(Answer by the Doctor) : "Well that depends. I sup- 
pose, on the Liver." 

Ada Neal (At Acme) : "Please give me a quarter's 
worth of ice cream." (Cream is handed to her). 
Miss Neal: "How much is it, please?" 

Dr. Simpson: "What is the name of that elevation 
on tin* interior part of the crest of the Illium?" 
Student: "The Eternal Occipitalprotuberance". 

Student: "Professor Hodges, will you please explain 
that again?" 

Professor Hodges: "Yes, that is what I said." 
Student : "I say, will you please explain that again ?" 
Professor Hodges: "Yes, that is exactly what I said."

Prof. Brown: "Yes. only it is white and not wite. 

Professor Leonard on examination: "Give reasons

It is a conjugate salt. The reaction takes place more 
readily in the absence of light. It has a pleasant taste 
and an etherial odor. When in small quantities it produces 
a blissful sensation, but in large quantities it has a nause- 
ous effect. It is soluble iii distilled moonlight, and preci- 
pitates by the action of tulips. 

Davis Estell, elaborately adorned in the meshes of a 
lace curtain, was playing the part id' a "lady", and inci- 
dentally teaching the Kappa Alphas to dance. Evening 
after evening, he labored hard with the "brethren", and 
finally, just several days before an Armory dance, he as- 
sembled them all together and rendered the following de- 
cision : 

1. ".him" Ilaworth can dance fairly well, he may go 
to the dance and take a girl. 

'2. "Prep" Oldham can dance only tolerably well. 
However, he may go to the dance, but must "stag" it.

heme. This annoui • nenl produced various results. 


''Jum" called up Woman's Hall immediately. "Prep" 
got nervous and excited, and "Pidge" became sad and 
melancholy and was not heard to speak for days. 

Scene : Big swing at Millers. 

Wiley, as the swing broke: "What in the nation 
struck us?" 

Becky : "They must have turned the goat out." 

Ada Neal: "I don't know what is the matter with me

And did you ne'er feel pain 
To sec Professor Alchemy 
Stall, stall again? 
illonttCOla 2. It seems to me but yesterday 

09 Nor scarce so long ago 

Since his awful tests "immediately", 
Made terrible heart and toe. 

3. Our professor was as prompt a man, 
As e'er commission bore 

On time he buttoned up his coat 
On time lie shut the door. 

4. TTe thought of us as molecules 
With motions tried and true 
With valency forever set 
And efflorescence too. 

5. He fed us much with Co, 
With sulphur and with lime 
And once a little poetry 

To the tune of "Analine." 

6. The Lab suggested Brimstone Land 
The horns and spear-like tail 

The fizzling and the sizzling 
The gnashing and the wail. 

7. Sometimes we'd ask a question 
And get that icy look 

And hear again that sweet refrain 
"You'll find it in the book." 

8. Alchemy is an acid man 
But here I wish to state 

If you'll throw in honest students 
You'll get love precipitate.

Green be the turf above thee, 
Friend of the flunking class. 

None knew thee but to ride thee 
Nor rode thee but to pass. 

Grades fell when thou wert wanting 
For those unused to failing 

Who oft on thee went jaunting 
Across the passing railing. 

And now that thou art vanished 

I wonder how we'll fare 
When we search in brains so famished 

For knowledge never there

You see that jerk? Well, that's a whale 

Which steals poor minnow's wobbling tail. 
List what he says, "A lucious bit, 
"This time I'll get the whole of it," 

Yet ponders he and tarries there, 

While I, excited, tear my hair 
And wish that all the tribe of fins 
Were in — the place of many sins. 

There was a time when study was the style. 
To boost the marks was always thought worth while, 
But now the student ( ? ) leaves the books behind 
Reposing on the bosom of the "grind.'' 

But time goes on, and study wins the day, 
Where is the student ( "?) wending his fleet way? 
A man to run its ship, the state does hunt — 
Why! it's the "college grind" that does that "stunt."

24. Monticola goes to press. Athanaeum joins crusade

charity lay mostly with the audience. 
W. U. P. wipes out the foot ball score at the other 
end of the game. Let in ten runs in 1st inning.

"Do you

feres isn't worth writing. 

Jr. Prom decorations begin. Tree conveniently falls 
over on campus to furnish greenery. Will you lend 
us your pennants?
